Michelle is also gifted at writing. I have received notes from her that I have loved. She also writes a blog. When I read the things she writes I can see her intelligence shining through. Michelle is smart. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from BYU. She was just trying to do her best, and was surprised when she received that distinction.
Michelle has been in the family for enough years to have 5 children. Getting those children here took extreme courage, and faith. I think many people would have been done after having one pregnancy like hers, but she and Trent felt like there were more children for them and Michelle was willing to be incredibly sick for 9 months at a time to get them. Michelle loves her children and enjoys the good things that they do.
Michelle is a wonderful person. She is not perfect. She occasionally says outrageous things. But nobody is more aware of her imperfections than she is, and I think that is what helps her to be able to be compassionate to others when she sees their need. Michelle is fun. She has a contagious laugh. She has a beautiful voice. She likes making things (like jewelry), and she enjoys cooking. Because Michelle has been compassionate, and helped me find my smile again on days that it was lost, and because I love her, I hope that today she will have lots to laugh and smile about. Happy Birthday Michelle!
