Happy Birthday Sweet Daughter!

36 years ago today at 1:59 p.m. was one of the happiest days of my life!    My daughter was born and my life has never been the same.   She was 3 weeks overdue and she’s been running late ever since  (sorry Shannon) but I love you anyway!

Oh yeah, she was a butterball…as we say here in the south, fat and happy!

She was a beautiful baby (doesn’t every mother think that about their baby?) and she’s turned into a beautiful woman, both inside and out

I’m so fortunate that she lives close by and we talk every day.    She calls me every morning on her way to work and tells me the latest on the twins…I try and go by her office a couple of times during the week.    Today I’m taking her to lunch. 

I’ve been very blessed with both of my children…they didn’t give me too much trouble growing up, they’ve both made wonderful choices in their spouses, and have given us a total of 4 grandchildren.     

You make me proud to be your mama Shannon…I love you!
