I want to wish my younger daughter Lauren Jessica Mayne Carroll a very happy birthday. When she was born twenty-seven years ago in Brandon, Florida, she joined her sister Alison who was 2-1/2 at the time, my husband Wally, and me.
Lauren has made me a very proud mama in many ways. She’s a committed Christian, loving daughter, and married to Ryan, a really great guy who is serving in the U.S. Air Force. She recently started a job with Createspace, an Amazon company, where I pray she thrives and finds a rewarding career. She has two cute kitties, Maddie and Olive.
