15 Years Ago Today

15 years ago today I began a journey that changed my life forever. At 4:00am I went into labor and almost four hours later at 7:59am, weighing in at 6 lbs 4 oz, and 19 1/2 inches long, my beautiful daughter entered this world. My labor was relatively easy (Notice I said relatively, it still hurt!!) and a good indication about how my life with this little angel would be.

There aren’t enough words to tell you what a wonderful girl she is, but here are a few-




Great Big Sister


A few other words are- smart, sweet, confident, strong, polite, respectful, gifted, focused, mature, and I could go on and on. As you can see, I am so proud of my wonderful girl. Psalm 127:3-4 in the Message Bible says, Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?  the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?  Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth.Oh, how blessed are you parents,  with your quivers full of children!
Children are indeed God’s best gift! And today I am thankful that one of the best of the best is mine! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
