Happy Birthday, Glenda!!!

March 25, 1975........

A soon to be teenage girl in Arkansas was oblivious to what was happening in a delivery room in Texas where beautiful baby girl was born.

The teen's world revolved around her sixth grade perspective~ turning flips in the back yard and trying to make straight A's on her report card.

The spring afternoon did not bring concern of newborns in Texas.

Destiny has it's way of finding you.


Broken Hearts.

Broken families.

Broken lives.


Empty hearts.

And wham!

a parent's love is born!!!!

Thirty-four years ago- my world changed forever and I had no clue.

I didn't get to hold her when she cried.

I didn't even change one diaper.

I never saw her kindergarten graduation.

I didn't take her to her first haircut.

but when she was 15 she became our daughter!

We prayed with her at an altar.

We watched her become a woman of God.

We took her shopping.

We kissed her goodnight.

We were at her highschool graduation.

We drove her to college.

We helped plan her wedding.

I almost missed her wedding giving birth to her sister.... but I made it. :)

So I will stop there.

How blessed am I? (and her dad)

I am so proud of you! ~And I cannot wait to see you Friday!
