Happy birthday Nana...
12 years ago today, a very important thing happened. It was probably the 2nd most important thing in my life. No wait, 3rd, getting married was important, no, 4th, getting saved was paramount. Oops, no, 5th, being born was pretty important... So, the 5th most important day in my life. In order they were,
1. Being born
2. getting saved
3. getting married
4. Matt's birth
5. Nana was born!!!
Yep you guessed it, 12 years ago today I gave birth to a purple baby girl. Yes she was purple, that isn't a typo, the cord was wrapped around her neck 3 times, so by the time she came out she was purple. Que told her once that the lack of oxygen must have killed all of the mean cells, because she doesn't have a mean bone in her body.
lol it is pretty true. Here is a Microburst about her and In her honor.
(it's a new one, will be in Microbursts! 2 )
Whatever state you are in…
This year I have accused Christeonnah (11) of trying to get a medical degree vicariously. Why? She has had too many ailments! Ok here is the list;
• Tibial tubercle fracture (broken tibia)
• Broken tooth (baby tooth thankfully)
• Had to have her eyes checked
• Had to be tested for glaucoma
• The worst case of lice I have ever seen (another med had itching as a side effect so they hid)
• Very bad Poison Ivy
• Was diagnosed with migraines
• Sty’s in her eye
• Trip to emergency room with a very sprained knee.
The thing about it is through it all, with all that has gone on, she is still always, always, almost without exception, in a good mood. She is the epitome of Philippians 4:12
I have learned to be content, no matter what the situation.
