Our First Blink ... Our Daughter's Birthday

Doesn't seem possible that 28 years ago ... Thursday,  February 13, 1986 
our little miracle came into the world.  She was a miracle in that the doctors said we would never have children -- 
but God said otherwise.

I know that I don't say enough about my daughter ... but the truth is -- 
she's an extraordinary young woman.  She seeks God's desire for her life and 
the life of her family.  She's a wonderful wife to her 'Joe as well as an awesome Mommy to her children.  
Her Daddy & I have watched our little bundle of joy become the young devoted woman she is today. 

Parents always remember the birth of their children -- and Dan & I remember that particular Thursday very well... 
snow & ice all over the city where our hospital was -- 
my Granny & I on the phone all day as she was in the hospital across town (Dan was driving my Mother to check on Granny & 
there were wrecks all over town) --
my husband standing by my hospital bed when our daughter entered our world. 
The only thing we seem to have a "difference of opinion" on is how much snow was on the ground ... suffice it to say, there was ALOT -- more than likely over a foot of it.  But, the snow amount aside, we do agree that these past 28 years have gone by quickly.

So, here's some pictures & collages of
the first time we blinked ... 



We are so thankful that God chose us to be the parents of this young woman. 
We love her and her family ~~~ 
and look forward to seeing how God will use their family & bless each of them 
in the days & years ahead.

Happy Birthday, Mrs. GI Joe ~~~
With all our love, 
Daddy & Mother
