What a gift to our family....
28 years ago the Lord blessed us with a precious baby girl, 9 pounds, 12 ounces and a head full of black hair. We named her after my mom, who was there for her birth. Laura Marjorie. She is the only grandchild that carries my mother's name and that is a special gift to my heart.
She was a planned C-section and I wanted her to be born on the 10th, which is my mom's birthday, but the doctor had a golf game scheduled and said he would do the birth on the 8th. We didn't know we were having a girl. Back then, we had to wait till the birth to see what the Lord had blessed us with. I knew if we had a girl that we would give her my mom's name. :}
Here are some things that come to my heart when I think about my girl...
she was my only child born with hair
long hair and braids with ribbons
sucking her finger with part of her monkey sock in her mouth too
crumpling like a piece of paper
moving from Alaska
College Graduation and Master's Graduation
a soft heart
loves to laugh
her family means everything to her
idolizes her brother and her sister
great Auntie to Taylor, Tanner and Tristan
cherishes her friends
I love her to the moon and back and back again! She has blessed our lives and given us so much joy! So incredibly proud of her and her pursuit of the dreams that are in her heart.
I really do have the best kids in the whole wide world! I wouldn't trade them for any others I know.... and I know a lot of great kids :}
This mom's heart is thankful for the Lord's faithfulness in her life.
I love you Laura!
Your mom forever...
