I actually want to use this forum to thank my wonderful mom. She enjoys telling me the story about the time that she began experiencing some warning signs around 3 months into her pregnancy. The idiot doctor at the time had no comforting words for her except to say, "Go home and get ready to lose the baby." Thankfully, my mom is the fighting type and she consulted her trusted friend and OB who told her that was hogwash and to get off of her feet. She obeyed. Obviously, you know the end of the story, because here I am, 35 years later.
Now that I am a mom and have been blessed to carry and deliver two babies of my own, I'm so thankful that she brought me into this world. The fact that God chose she and my family for me is such a blessing.
So, thank you, Family (and friends). Thanks for your kind words and sweet wishes today. I love you all!
