HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

Today is the 3rd of October, and the day SUNSHINE was born!
How amazing & delightful that is!
My wonderful mother loves to retell the story of my birth starting with the night before.
And I love hearing it! She remembers so many details-like how when her water broke (despite her doctors orders) she refused to go directly to the hospital with out a shower. (If you know my mother you aren't shocked)

I've gotten great birthday wishes, cards and even a few gifts!
I am blessed with so much love!

My godfather/Uncle in Atlanta called and recounted the first time that he saw me.
It was the sweetest story and I don't think that I had ever heard it, and being my mothers brother he remembered details like the yellow ribbon my mother had put in my hair!
It was the sweetest most endearing thing!

Enjoy the day, I will!

Awwwwhhhh!!! I loved that. Knowing how much you love your birth story has made me determined to remember all the details of mine to share with Safiyah for years to come. And I hope you'll have a wonderful story to share with her about the 1st time you saw her, as well! (Why didn't I think of the yellow ribbon...how cute!!) HAPPY B-DAY SUNSHINE!!!
