Thankful Thursday


Once again I am thankful for this young lady, who turns thirteen today.  Not even three years ago, this photo shows her sweet smile and fun loving spirit.  

On this day, all those years ago, I remember the nursery calling into the OR to let everyone know that her official weight was barely shy of ten pounds.  Everyone cheered and went into a round of applause.  Even those poor students who came in to, "observe"!  

"What I wanted most for my daughter was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky."

  21. My last daughter was also over 10 pounds. Which is one of the reasons she is my last! Mine is so special and I can only imagine how great your daughter is. I know she has a loving mom, based on your writing, so she is also a lucky kid.

  24. Oh, what fun she must have been having when she caught that fish. Is that a creek or river near you? I'm sure she's just as proud to have you as her mother as you are to have her as your daughter.
