On Tuesday, June 29th, 1999, at 4:03 pm, our daughter Morgan was born via emergency c-section. She weighed 8 lbs. 11 oz. and measured 21 1/2 inches long. Nearly a month early, you couldn’t tell by those measurements. We were so thankful to God she had no health issues at all.
Every year on her birthday, we regale her with the story about the day she was born. Tommy has to fill in a lot of blanks for me due to my being partially sedated that afternoon. Ha! Ha!
Sixteen years have passed. Sixteen! Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe she’s sixteen! Where has the time gone? She’s had a learners permit for over a year now and today she will have her drivers license. She’s been ready for this day for quite sometime now. Her daddy and I have not been so ready. With another year under her belt, comes new adventures and responsibilities. For her daddy and me, comes the part of letting her go and having some of those adventures, within reason, of course.
Here’s to another year, dear daughter! One of many great times and adventures! Your daddy and I love you more than you know!
The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
