FC: Trina's 50th | October 31 , 2012
1: October 31 , 2012 | Trina - This compilation of pictures, thoughts, and Birthday Wishes was written especially for you on the occasion of your 50th Birthday by those whose lives you have touched. We all wish you a very Happy Birthday with many many more to come!
2: So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
6: Trina – When we first met, I never imagined how our future would become forever entwined. My first glance I was captivated by your beautiful eyes. (But so was the Senator) I didn’t realize it then, but I found the love of my life! You used to sit at your desk and barely give me any notice. I always tried to play it off. Then came the 5 O’Clock hallway shuffle as you walked to your car. I always seemed to need to go to the bathroom as the same time! (My bladder is like that) I have so many great memories of our life together. Our “pre” 1st date at Black Bear Restaurant, our 1st date “formal” where you met my Mother, even the first kiss afterward at the Sparks Marina. It seems like only yesterday because I keep such precious memories constantly alive in the pages of my mind. | I love being around you, how we finish each others sentences, how we just suddenly blurt out some stupid movie line from Young Frankenstein and laugh! We’ll see one of my many “Girlfriends” on TV or at the movies (like Kate Beckinsale) and we’ll think about Serendipity! You make my life worth living! I am no longer the same person I was when we first met. With you by my side I am a better man. I love you because of the person you have helped me to become. | We have made so many memories together! Remember that first trip you came out to Alabama to see me when I was in training? Who would have guessed that would lead to the many other trips to places like Washington DC, Biloxi, New Orleans, Nashville, Tampa, San Antonio, Mexico... So many memories, even brief trips like our layover in Denver to go to Casa Bonita! I also love that we share a fascination with History and our treks to see historical sites.
7: Love | This year we were blessed to enjoy the whirlwind trip through Europe! I remember how exhausted you were when we were in France. I had to wake you up on the bus to point out the sights! And then you went right back to sleep! At least we still managed to kiss at the Eiffel Tower! | My life has taken so many different paths... Some have been right and some have been wrong BUT I am most thankful for the path that took me to you! Now I find it easier to choose the right paths because we do so collectively, as a team. You also took on the role as mentor and friend to my Children. As I see them succeed in life, I know they too would not be where they are today without your wise counsel. | I am thankful that you have also brought me closer to God. I guess I could say that an angel flew into my life, and that angel is You. You have guided me spiritually and emotionally. I will continue to live my life according to our verse, “Where you go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, your God my God.” Ruth 1:16 | There are 12 months a year...30 days a month...7 days a week...24 hours a day...60 minutes an hour...but only one person like you in a lifetime. I am so lucky that we found each other! | Happy Birthday, Trina! I look forward to many more years of Life and Love with you! All my love, Paul
10: ADOLPH | Dear Trina You'll always be my little girl. After years, you have grown and become a beautiful woman, who makes her own choices, knows her own mind, and speaks her own voice. I have lots of good memories of you growing up and raising your family. Some hard times, and some good times, but you always made it! I hope we have the rest of our lives, just as good! Happy 50th. And may the rest of it be even better. Love you, Dad and Barbara.
11: ZACH | Mom, Remember that time I was killing bees and stomped on one barefoot. I was screaming and you put mustard on it to help the pain. Or when we were eating McDonald's at the park (I think we called it Ducky pond) and that GOOSE snatched my meat out of the burger leaving me just the buns :,( So we shared yours :) Or when I got caught playing with matches near some drapes behind the chair. And had to go to the fire department to do a "scared straight" thingy. And that time I had a Crazy idea about how to "make E Z money" :) and we got to meet some government officials for the first time :) My Bad. You've always been there for me mom no matter what. From the smallest things to the biggest "ZACHARIAH TRAVIS FITTS" you stood by me. You've been my best friend my whole life, and one day when/if I have kids I hope to raise them as you raised me. I Love You Mom <3 Happy Birthday! Love, Zach
12: JARED & ALYSE | Hey mom! Happy 50th! Although you don't look a day over 30 ;-) I just want you to know you couldn't have raised us any better! We're the luckiest kids in the world to have you, including all our friends that call you mom! I only hope I can do half a good of job raising Alyse as you did for us. Luckily Alyse will you have you too! There's so many things I've learned from you that I'll use to raise her, the list would never end! And I know that you'll always be there for us and I'm so thankful for your never ending support. I love you mom! Jared!
14: JORDAN | Happy Birthday, Mom! I am who I am today because of you! You really are the best Mom in the world and I Love the Shit out of you! Love, Jordan
15: LEAH | To my Beautiful Mommy, HAPPIEST OF ALLLLL HAPPY BIRTHDAYS.. Your 50TH!!!:) Wow does time fly.. I remember faking sick almost everyday of elementary school just so you would have to take the day off to pick me up and spend the entire day with me.. Rarely was I ever really sick, I just always had this constant longing for wanting to be with you. To me, you are and have always been the most beautiful woman to have ever walked this earth; You radiate love, courage, wisdom & strength, and I've always wanted to be just like you. I pray that you one day see yourself in the light that I always have, and on this day, you reflect on the BEAUTIFUL life you've lived and created for yourself in the past 50 years, because it's one to be PROUD of. I love you Mommy, Happy Birthday :) Your biggest admirer, MissyBoola
16: Dear Trina, I would like to say thank you for coming into my Fathers life. It has been great getting to know you and spend time with you. I have enjoyed these past few years, coming home late and having conversations about life. Those long talks have helped shape me into the man I am today. You may not know it, but my success thus far has been directly impacted my those late night conversations. I sure miss talking to you guys all the time. You have been such a great example for me. You have fed me knowledge that I can use and pass on, and for that I am grateful. For this year I would like to speak blessings over you. I pray for healing, healing over everything, the old aches and pains, healing of any broken relationships that you may have, but most of all the healing of your Lupus. I pray for more love, I pray that you and my dad will fall even deeper in love with each other. I pray for even greater financial blessings. I pray that this next year will top all the previous years, and will be your best. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and God bless you With love, Anthony
17: ANTHONY & ALIXE | Dear Trina, Happy 50th birthday and may God continue to bless you on your journey! Love, Alixe
18: BRANDEN | Happy Birthday Trina, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday. Thank you for the influence you have been in my life. I remember all the times I went to your shop across the street from Reed. It was always great hanging out over there talking about the day and getting advice. I pray that you will be blessed in the coming years and that you will continue to be the great influence that you are. I pray a spirit of peace over you. Proverbs 9:11 – “For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.” Stay safe and God bless, Branden
19: ANGELINA | Happy Birthday Trina! I hope and pray that today is an amazing day for you and that the years ahead of you are full of blessings. You are an amazing, fun, beautiful creation from God. I am so blessed to have you in my life over these past few years. I wanted to leave you with a few bible verses. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you Proverbs 9:10-12 However many years a man may live, let him enjoy them all. Ecclesiastes 11:8 Out of all the people on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession. Deuteronomy 14:2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. 3 John 2 Again, Happy Birthday! I Love You! Angelina
20: Happy 50th Birthday, Trina! We pray you are blessed as you look back over your life so far and are reminded of the goodness of the Lord. The older we get the more we realize just how much each new day is a blessing from God. Only in accepting Christ by faith do the pieces of life fall into place and we begin to see how God led us along through each situation in order to bring us to the point where we must either choose Him or reject Him. We're thankful you chose Christ and are committed to Him, first and foremost, then to Paul, and your family. Thankful as well your commitment to be a voice for the unborn as you believe God's Word where it says, "Before I (God) formed you in the womb I knew you, before you born I set you apart." Jeremiah 1:5 Throughout scripture we see God using people during the latter part of their life after having prepared them through the early years. Instead of the tease of being "over the hill" for those in Christ, it should be you've just crested the hill and are now warmed up; ready to live out His purpose in greater measure. Life lessons learned can be used to mentor others. We wish you more joy for the journey as you draw nearer to Christ and continued blessings always. Hugs, Tony, Lou Anne, Jeremy, & Josh 1 John 3:1 | Happy Birthday, Trina! And Many more to come! Mei
21: Happy Birthday!! Hope you have a lovely day! It was really nice to spend time with you in January :) Love, Rachel Morris
22: Happy birthday! You are an inspiration to me as such a happy, smart, caring person, and I'm so glad that you are part of the Hinen family! Love, Stephanie Hinen | Trina I appreciate all the times and discussion we've had over the years. Beginning when you infiltrated "The He Man Womans Hater Club" to the present, which includes watching Chopped. That was so much fun when you, Paul and I prepared a meal as if we were on the show. You have always been very compassionate and understanding not only to me, but to all of those you have had an opportunity to touch. You are truly a blessing to family and friends. I am also grateful to you and Paul for supporting me by opening up your home for me to serve in the Nevada Army National Guard. That has helped a tremendous amount as I struggled through a few tough years following my divorce. As you reach this huge milestone in your life I want to wish you a Happy Birthday and hope your next 1/2 century with Paul is amazing! Love, Jim
23: Dear Trina, When I first met you, our families were going through some difficult times, but from the very beginning you have been a bright light. You have brought so much joy and have been so instrumental in uplifting this family. I've been amazed at what a difference you have made. I'm very thankful for you and I hope you have a very happy birthday! Love you! Sarah Cross | Dear Trina, I have always been inspired by your ability to love and bring joy to people. I was so blessed by the words you wrote me in the album Tina put together for my wedding. I never got a chance to thank you, so I want to thank you for the wisdom you shared with me! I am inspired by the way you love people, and the way you love Uncle Paul. I hope I can learn to love the way you do. May you be blessed beyond words on your birthday and this year! Love, Rachel Sanders
24: Happy Birthday Sister, All my life I have looked for you to fill that void in my life and be that trust worthy companion. Then one day this gentleman phones me out of the blue and to find out I had been driving by your home for many years not knowing you were right next to me all the while. I say this with great pride and humility, I am so blessed and thankful to have had God intervene in our search for one another. Our childhood is a blur to me weather I choose to block it out or sincerely don't recall most of it. I do recall the amazing relationship you and I shared and I feel that's what I had been searching for all these years. I thank God daily for you and pray we can establish an even greater relationship in the near future. I wish you the very best Birthday and all that you desire from life. I love you with every ounce of my sou Your little Brother Steve | Trina, ah so much I could say. The first time I met you, I already knew we were going to be so close. I am glad I got to meet you when I did. It's hard to think that I might not have gotten to get to know such an amazing Woman. These past few years of knowing you and your family have been such a great impact on my life. I pray that we have amazing years to come! You are the best Aunt I could ever ask for! Happy Birthday Auntie. I love you with all my heart -Jacket
25: KEY KAT | Happy “Meow” Birthday! Ok, enough about you There are a few points I’d like to clarify in order for our coexistence to be more harmonious. It’s mainly little things, like it’s impolite to turn off the water in the sink before I have finished drinking. When walking around the house, I have the right-of-way. There is no expectation of privacy here, especially when you and Dad are trying to eat. I have plenty of impressive abilities that I’m not sure you appreciate. I’m pretty sure the airborne hair I shed helps repair the ozone layer. I can nap on command and don’t need you to grab my belly when I am doing it. When you’re standing there doing your make up or cooking, do you have any idea how much skill it takes to do figure eights around your legs? That means PET ME! I’m just asking for a little effort on your part. First of all, can you PLEAASSSEEEE get rid of that stupid dog Ginger? She’s only a dog and she interrupts your caretaking duties. Also - what you see as my noisy 3 AM hacking up fur balls, I see as good time management; however, you need to do better job of cleaning them up so I don’t have to sleep with them! And just so we can better communicate, it would be helpful if you familiarized yourself with the dozens of different looks I give you. Remember I don't “meow.” Remember also that if you’re talking to me, you don’t need to use the highest voice possible. Maybe you’re confusing me with the dog. By now you should know that I neither expect nor grant washroom privacy. When I come to visit you in the washroom it’s because I want your attention. Here are just a few final general guidelines before I finish your birthday letter. If I’m in the room give yourself an extra ten minutes to make my bed or I will stop sharing it with you. If you want a screen without a hole, you should give me a private entrance. And finally, I don’t purr, I never have and I never will Get over it! Warmest regards, Key Kat P.S. My litter box needs your attention. While you are at it, fill my food container - maybe Tuna next time! | I miss you, Momma. Happy Birthday! Love, Cali | OK... We'll snuggle... But then you have to throw the ball! | (And the dogs) | Ri Ruv Ruuuu!
26: Dear Trina, It was so nice visiting with you. I really enjoyed our time together. You have such a pleasant personality. We missed so many years together. I am so glad we are in touch again and I am so glad you are my niece. Love, Aunt Mona | Dear Trina, I wish you a Happy Happy 50th Birthday!!! Being back in touch with you is one of the best things that has happened to me in a long time. Having you back in my life is a true blessing to me. I always wished I had a sister... When we were kids, I always looked up to you. Look at the picture... I had to make sure I was right next to you. Having you to call or turn to as someone who truly cares, who will listen or give some good advice feels wonderful. Thank you, Trina, you have no idea how much it means to me. I am so happy for you, for all the good things in your life... and that you found Paul. It was so nice to see the love. May your 50th year make all your dreams come true. I Love You, Your Cousin Resa
27: Happy Birthday Trina! It was sure fun when you came over and we had Chicken and Dumplings. I hope we do that again someday! -Sarah Spears | Hi Trina. Happy Birthday. I’m so glad I got to meet you! -Heather Spears | Trina: My best memories are when you and I were little and we just played together. I hope you have a great Birthday! Victor Laurence | I want to wish you, Trina a Very Happy Birthday! Love Aunt Jeanette | Hi Trina, We both are wishing you a most wonderful 50th birthday, & may you live to celebrate another 50. God bless & Happy Birthday to you. Love , Joe & Ethel | You are such a special person and I'm so thankful that you came into Paul's life when you did. You complete him as a man and as a person and have made him so happy. I've only known you a few short years but it feels like a lifetime. You have always made me feel so special and I'm honored to be a part of your family. I really appreciate your relationship with God, and because of this relationship, you are a true inspiration to those around you. My Brother would have been so proud to call you daughter and in his place I am too. I'm looking forward to coming down at the end of this month for a visit, on my way to Arizona. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and may God continue to bless you All my love, Uncle Paul
28: Trina, I am so grateful that we have become friends. I have never been so close to anyone in my life besides Scott of course. I have always believed that people were just flakes that could not be relied on. Since we have become friends my view on the world and people have changed. You showed me the faith that I had lost or forgotten somewhere along the way. With your friendship, I now have found the courage in myself to be the person I know I am, but have been afraid to show. You have been there these past years to give me words of encouragement I have needed and advice to make me a great mom. You inspire me! When I look at you, I can see the person I want to be. I love you Trina! No matter how judgmental you are. Have A Great Birthday! Amberle
29: Trina, You are such a blessing in my life. I can always come to you with any question or problem I have and know that it will be a judgment free conversation, and I am incredibly thankful for that. You inspire me. I am so thankful you were born. Love you! Katie Gish | When you meet someone, there are different levels of their life that they allow you to be a part of. There are the ones that you just nod a hello to while passing, others will give you a how are you doing as they keep walking, not expecting you to answer. Sometimes you will have casual conversation with a person on a daily basis but never be allowed to glimpse anything personal. You can enjoy a meal with a person, talk about the family or life but they never truly open up any part of their heart. I have even met people that will tell you every intimate detail about their lives, but will know nothing about you because they choose not to listen. Then there is Trina Hinen, a truly remarkable woman. If you need to talk, she is there. If you need a hug, she is there. If you need to just sit and be, she is there. You can go days, weeks or months not talking and when you do see her, you pick up right where you left off. Not only does she open up her home, she also opens her heart and you are considered “Family” in every sense of the word. Trina, I am truly blessed that God placed you in my life. Thank you for being who you are and allowing me to be who I am. I wish you a very happy birthday with many wonderful blessings! All my love, Caroline Dryer | Happy birthday, Trina! I hope this next year is filled with love and blessings. You deserve it! Love you! Andrea Miller
30: Happy 50th Birthday Lady!!! May your next half century be absolutely full of every one of God's blessings!!! Thanks for sharing your home and part of the journey with us!!! Much love, xoxoxo Kim & Loren Ross | In 2010 i met you when our small group came together for the first time and i knew right then that a new friendship had been formed and i was extremely blessed. God placed me there on that night and has kept our group going because i know that's what we all needed. I've grown spiritually and as a woman as i have taken your advice to heart and applied it to my life. I felt like i was a mess and now not so much. I feel like i am growing into my own Christ follower and accepting Jesus as my Savior. Thank you so much for all you continue to do. Each day i am blessed to have such an amazing friend in my life that i can talk to and know that i can get advice to help me out with any situatuion. Happy 50th Birthday and Here's to 50 more God blessed years!!! :) Love Morgan Andrews
31: Trina, Happy Happy Birthday! Thank you for the encouragement over the time that I have gotten to know you and your Husband. I have enjoyed coming to your home for small group. Getting to know more of our SCF family. Learning more about God's word. Thank you! For the great Dateing tips along the way. I hope when God is ready for me to meet the special one that I will rember your great advice when it comes to looking for a mate. May God continue to bless you the rest of your life!!! Have a wonderful 50th Birthday!!!! Love in Christ, Angela Hillard | Trina; We are so happy and thankful that we get an opportunity to share our thoughts about you on your birthday. First of all, remember, your birthday is just a date on the calendar and the number of your birthday is just a number. I guess the greatest memory we have of you, since we've only known you for a short time, is the joy you experienced at Lake Davis interacting with the deer. The shear look of joy and excitement was so thrilling to us, and knowing that you were really blessed by that experience. We are happy to share moments like that with those we love and you helped us remember the blessings that God has given to us- Be blessed dear sister in Christ as you embark on a new year that God has granted you. Make the most of each day and know that God is with you and your lovely family. Richard & Patti Haas
32: Wishing you a Very Happy 50th Birthday, with many more to come! Shawn & Rosie Marston | Trina! You have been a huge source of wisdom and inspiration over the years, giving me strength I have needed to stand up in life and CONSTANTLY reminding me that things will be ok. I can not thank you enough for your advice, making me laugh, taking the edge off issues, and having a home and family that makes me and Devyn feel welcomed at all times. Dev and I want to wish you a very very happy birthday with many more to come and lots more good times ahead! Happy 50th! Love Kori and Devyn <3 | I just want to say Happy Birthday! Even though we have only talked a couple times on the phone I feel a connection between us. You share your messages of encouragement and strength with me via social media. I admire your beautys as women. You carry yourself with dignity and grace. I aspire to have the same qualities in my own life! Thank You for showing me how to live for today! I hope your day is filled with lots of love and happiness! Tracy Lamb | Happy Birthday, Trina! Have fun celebrating your 50th! May love, laughter, and contentment decorate your day and fill your year. Love from the Kyte Family
33: Trina, you are an amazing Christian woman, you are so kind and giving. You have advice in just about every subject and always know what to say. I'm glad you "adopted" my siblings and I as your nieces and nephews. hehe. I love hanging out and chatting with you. You inspire me to be an amazing, loving, Christian woman just like you. You are so sweet and funny,and every year that you get older you are worth more to me. I love you Aunt Trina Happy Birthday Makaela Wheeler | Trina Happy 50th! We all can't believe your really 50 but if you are claiming to be we will go along. You are a beautiful Godly woman inside and out. I remember when Paul introduced you to me, I didn't expect to find a new friend. But am truly grateful for our friendship. We have been able to share in each others lives, the good and the bad. There have been many times that your listening ear was my saving grace. Thank you for your friendship, you are a blessing! Looking forward to many years of great times together. I love you Trina. Shannon Wheeler | Happy birthday Trina :) I hope you have a lot of fun! I remember when I was younger and you use to tease me how Paul beat me to you haha. I remember when we went sushi and you said that you were going to be our Aunt. I still think of you as my Aunt. Thanks for always being there. Love, Hunter Wheeler
34: I used to work at a crummy little salon called Ms'tics. The owners were heavy duty "pot-heads" so the salon was the object that suffered. When the "new owners took possession they DID paint the hair side, however the "tanning" side was neglected. I was just a part time employee so I missed a lot of the comings and goings of personnel on a daily basis...I would show up for work and presto! a new stylist or nail tech or poof!..so and so is gone :( or :) whichever the case may be. One day, I can't recall when, because when you hit my age Trina you're just really happy to remember ...huh...where was I going with this... oh well... one day I showed up for work and there was a Presto... a new nail person. This person, you could tell, was someone special. You know how you are when you're new you're somewhat shy and reserved. Trina was all that BUT..........her station emitted elegance and class. WOOOHOOO maybe the owners have decided to class up the joint...only to realize it was a selfish reason....there was an open station. Trina didn't get reeled into the nonsense of it all, she had her conviction to Christ and was ready, willing and able to talk about the Bible at any given moment. This really pissed the owners off, I overheard them say a few snide comments and I felt bad. It didn't phase Trina in the least..atta girl!!! Trina, the day you and Paul came out here it was pretty chilly and I just wasn't prepared. I'd love to have you out again, this time for dinner, and I'll provide some really warm socks cuz your poor feet were freezing. I know, I'm rambling, so anyway...Trina, Happy 50th Birthday to you. You are so beautiful and I'm blessed to be able to say that you call me your friend. ( we are friends aren't we?) ;) Love you girl and have a wonderful day. Hey, that man of your is pretty damned special...clone him! Love ya, Deveny Nelson
35: Happy Birthday Beautiful Lady! Myself and my best friend are so blessed to have you in our lives! Thanks for always being there, stepping up and helping out when you didn't have to, and answering your phone at all different hours of the night. Your kindness and loyalty is very much appreciated, and I know there will be plenty more years to celebrate life with you! I love you! Happy Happy Birthday! Jillian DeCair | Dear Beautiful Trina, Happy Birthday to you first of all! Second, and in few words I want to tell you for the millionth time how wonderful you are. It's been years that I have been so lucky to have you in my life. You have been my friend, my mentor, a huge role model to me in life and in what love should be. We have shared so many stories of hurt and struggle, and here you are with Paul. So blessed and so happy. You beam all of the time, even though life still has its' struggles for you. I hope to one day look at my life and see a resemblance. You also were there for me one huge time as all of those things, plus the closest thing I had to a mom. When I had my surgery. It meant and still means so much to me, Trina. You are really a Godsend to so many people. But, you are so humble and it is so beautiful and frustrating at times. That heart that you have is full of so much love. Thank you for sharing it with me. Thank you for sharing it with Paul. You two are the most amazing people I know. I hope you have the happiest birthday! I hope you feel so wonderful and loved too. What you feel is only a fraction of what we, your friends and family feel for you. I love you so much! Amanda Williams
36: Dear Trina, Isnt it fun how the Lord takes two people without any known connections, and suddenly theyre family? We met for the first time when Pauls kids were students at Excel. I saw you coming and going, and we had a few brief conversations. The next thing I knew, my son was marrying Pauls niece, and the Cross family and the Hinen family were forever linked! How blessed we are! I love your passion for everything you love God, your marriage, your children and grandchildren. Your enthusiasm for life spills over everything you do although we dont see each other often, I see you on Facebook and get to chuckle at your humor. You have a way of making people smile, and making people believe that every day has the potential to be a GREAT day. I remember the time I needed an emergency nail-fill because my nail technician had broken her back. You squeezed me in, and I think it was the longest nail appointment I had ever had because we just kept talking! It was great, and I think we should try to do that again (you dont have to do my nails this time, though!) As we celebrate your birthday and honor you today, I want to leave you with a blessing. May God pour out an abundance of His riches and love on you & your family, and may He strengthen every bond in your life that you hold dear. The future is bright, and the best is yet to come! With love and best wishes on your very special 50th birthday, Lisa Cross | Well Trina what can I say about you? Lets see you are an amazing women. You have one of the biggest hearts I have ever seen. Thank you for always encouraging me. I Wil never forget the day you came to the salon before we opened. We were all talking you asked me about supplies. I will never forget it ! You asked if we would have toilet paper and paper towels. Lol. I thought to myself what an odd question. Well I want you to know its one of my biggest pet peeves. It always makes me smile when I think about it. And that's one of the biggest things I love about you. You can always make me laugh and smile. While making sure everything is in order. Your always encouraging and in an unjudge mental way. Full of great wisdom. One of the most remarkable women i know. Strong and unstoppable. Thank you for always speaking the positive in my life. And for helping me to see the big picture in life. You have a way of touching peoples hearts. Love you Trina. A true women of God! Kara Miller
37: Dear Trina, I just wanted to say Happy birthday and you are awesome! You ave blessed me in so many ways. Not only did you give awesome pedicures but you were the first person to make Honour and my feet look pretty! The strength you display during challenging times inspire me. I think the thing that stands out for me the most is you are kind, generous, compassionate, loving and caring. Those qualities make you a Super Hero in my book. Im thinking they should make you a comic book super hero! TRINAFighting Evil with Good! I hope you have a great birthday! You have a great husband by the way. You are blessed to have each other. May the Lord continue to strengthen you and His Healing power surround you like never before. Blessings and love, Lesia Knudsen | Trina, though we do not spend near enough time together you are an inspiration in my life. You always are so calm and logical minded, your faith is a glow about your life and defines your character. You truly are what I hope to one day become. A woman strong willed and determined. You have lead me to grow deeper in my own faith and have have shown me that faith is not its own portion of your life but that it should encompass the entirety of everything you should do. Your strength has encouraged me to be stronger. One of my favorite memories with you is simply sitting on your patio drinking wine and talking. Which we need to do again soon. I look forward to growing closer with you and your family over time. Happy birthday to the beautiful Trina. Truly, Julianna Jefferson | Happy Birthday Trina! You are so many things to me I wouldn't even know where to begin, thank you for being the amazing person you are. I love and respect you more than I could ever tell you, and can't count how many times you have been there for me. I hope this birthday gives you everything you deserve and reminds you how loved you are... I Love You So Much! Karlene Fitts

Have a very Happy 50th Birthday, Trina! Celebrate this very special day doing something you love and enjoy! You are so worth it! Hugs, Lynn Aboumrad | Happy Birthday Trina! Carl Stone | Trina, I have often thought about you and wondered why we don't spend more time together. You and I are connected by a strange bond, and I think we both feel that way. Kindred spirits. Since the first time I met you, I knew you were one of God's special people, put here on earth with a purpose...and having known you for a while now, I believe you fill that purpose very well. You are an amazing, strong woman of God. A wonderful prayer warrior. A kind hearted person who knows how to give comfort without blowing smoke up a behind. One of the most level headed, intelligent women I know. I am truly blessed to know you, and call you friend. You inspire me, and make me want to be a better woman. And you know I don't believe in blowing smoke up butts either, so you know what I'm saying is the truth. I'm not sure what all I can say here... Except I love you very much. I hope you have an amazing birthday! You deserve it! Sara Sims
