She came quickly and changed my life forever.
Well, I guess quickly isn't exactly right. I mean, I did have to wait the full nine months. But when she decided to enter this world, man alive did she come fast!
One year ago today the sun was shining and it was warm out. At least it felt warm to me, the walking whale like woman. I remember the most important thing on my mind that day was to get some sparkling something (cider, grape juice, I didn't care what) to celebrate her arrival. As soon as the nurses left us alone in the room, we broke it out, and with smiles to the moon and soft voices so as not to disturb her, we toasted the wonderful addition to our family.
I was told she looked just as I had looked as a newborn. But I have never in my life been as beautiful as she is.
1~ I am grateful that I get to be the mother of such beautiful and good children. Keith amazes me every day with how good he is, and I know Faye is the same way.
2~ I am so grateful and excited for the wind that is in the forcast. I love wind! Oh, and the snow makes me a little giddy as well.
3~ I am thankful for suckers at the doctor's office and at the bank. Nothing can keep a small child occupied like a sucker!
4~ I am thankful for immunizations. Thank heavens my children don't have to deal with chicken pox like I did. What a horrible itchy disease! And all the others on top of it. So glad they can be spared.
5~ But mostly, today, I am thankful for Faye.
