It's rare that I post in honor of someone else, but I couldn't resist today, as Carla is celebrating her 7th (or 28th!) birthday! Happy Birthday Carla!
There is much I could say about Carla, but I'm just going to share a few extra special (and funny!) memories...
- After living in WI for 2 weeks, one of her first reactions to the new culture was, "so much pizza!" (it's true!)
-She wore high heels to her first walk in the woods... she obviously grew up in the city :) She had the best fashion, but we did like to tease her about that ;)
-Carla was/is SUCH a good student! In fact, she had the best grade in one of her classes, which is amazing for a foreign exchange student, but the funniest part was-this was an American History class... Kind of embarrassing for all of us Americans!!
-Carla taught me how to eat 'properly' with a fork and knife. A habit that has still stuck with me!
-Carla was always patient, always thoughtful, always looking out for others. She taught us crazy Rogers a lot!
You never know when God will bring someone into your life who will then go out and live for Him. She's married to Zabdiel and serving the Lord in Curacao (off the Venezuelan coast). How amazing is that?
Other than not liking chocolate, I'd say Carla is about the perfect addition to our family ;) I love you Carla! I hope you enjoy your birthday!!!!
