I don’t have much time to update the Good News Network this weekend because I am hosting a party for my daughter’s 11th birthday. . . She knew immediately what kind of party she wanted when she saw the closing scene of Ocean’s Twelve. She said she would have a poker party and play music from the movie’s soundtrack. So today, after opening presents from her 6 girlfriends, ranging in ages from 9-13, she moved the party ‘to the parlor’ and taught them how to play poker…
One of her friends, who is quite shy, came into the kitchen an hour later, saying, "I love poker." … (I did too, when I was a kid.) All her friends were given poker kits to take home.
I’m so proud of this young girl, a pianist, a jewelry maker, a poker player… Happy 11th birthday.
