Six Years Ago


Six years ago today I was in the hospital giving birth to my first baby. After 26 hours of labor (some spent at the mall, some watching the movie, "Zoolander" and a majority of the time laboring in the hospital), our daughter Kelsey Joy was born. What makes this date extra special is that she shares my birthday! It just makes August 20 twice as much fun. My Dad thinks we need two birthday cakes.

As we get older, Kelsey is on the brink of losing both of her two front teeth, just in time for first grade to start. I'm noticing my age, as I was recently told that I'm developing arthritis in my knee. However, I don't want to focus on the down side of aging, but rather the joys in life! My prayer is that I might grow old gracefully.
