Remembering...

Today is Sarah's birthday...my oldest daughter. She was born some twenty odd years ago. To me, it just does not seem that long ago! I remember going to the hospital at 5:00 pm on a Friday afternoon and having the doctor tell me that I should go home because it was not time yet. And, she was already 3 weeks overdue!!! But, after much discussion, I stayed! And, she was born at 2:42 am Saturday morning. What a wonderful experience!!! ( So wonderful that I ended up having 6 children!) I remember being excited and scared all at the same time. It was a wonderous time, one I am so glad God blessed me with. You just can't explain the joy that you feel when you first see and get to hold YOUR baby. Back then, we stayed in the hospital for 3 full days. It gave me plenty of time to get to know her before heading home to start our life together as a family...mom, dad and baby girl. I would not trade that time, that experience for anything! Happy Birthday Sarah. I love you!!!
