My daughter is sixteen years old today!!! I remember clearly the day she was born, beautiful spring day, and the weather was beautiful. I had begun the morning by swinging my older daughter from the swing in the front yard. I proceeded to labor with her all day and helped it out by walking at the mall. I realized I was in full labor when I wasn't able to walk through the pain anymore and would stop and pretend I was windowshopping when a contraction came. I went home, called my doctor, and within two hours, she was here!!! She was a bundle of joy, and still is, on most days! Where does the time go? I wouldn't trade her for the world. Happy Birthday Sarah!!

Life is short. Don't waste your time and make every minute count! I have often heard those words and but don't think of them as often as I should. I have a friend who just barely made it though an anneurism surgery without any complications (whew!) only to find out during his follow-up visit and x-rays that he now has back cancer. It caught him and his wife by surprise and they're devestated. I'll be sending them positive thoughts and prayers, and remembering the value of life and it's precious moments to cherish througout the day. I think I'll visit my mother-in-law today. I'll spend those extra minutes I'd be watching tv just visiting and sharing my day with her, as she loves company.
