Eighteen years ago today my life was forever changed.
You see I was Nineteen and God Blessed My Husband and I
with this lovely little life.
After a very hard 27 1/2 hour labor and 3 more hours of pushing
Emily Elizabeth came into this world. 7 pounds 6 ounces 21 inches long.
A prefect, beautiful, wonderful little lovely life.
She was the most amazing thing I had ever accomplished.
I have never experienced any other feeling like giving birth to my
3 daughters. All I can say is that it is sheer joy that I felt the moment they
placed her in my arms.
I am certain that I have made so many mistakes with her.
But I am also certain that she will and has bounced back...
(I have such a hard time showing her this because I have been trying in my
own strange ways to protect her from the horrible world that is out there. From making the same silly
mistakes that I made)
She will make her own mistakes.
Be her own person.
Be who God made her to be.
I adore her.
I am sad that she is turning 18.
Sad that the years have gone by so very quickly.
continue to make in the future.
Oh how I love you, Emily.
You changed my life and made me a Mother.
You made me what God called me to be your Mom.
thank you for that.
Thank you Lord, for this precious and lovely life.
Happy 18th Birthday, Em! You can always make me laugh.
