June 23 has always been my day of celebration.
This year I celebrated a monumental birthday, with a little help from my friends and the gift of a very special Grand daughter, it has been the most wonderful day I have ever experienced!!
Because of her expected arrival near the end of the month, plans for celebrating had to be re-arranged. Social events basically were put on hold, or moved to earlier in the month so that I could be available for my sweet daughter and the grand kids, and in case the baby came early.
There was talk of the possibility of her being induced on my birthday, however, my daughter really wanted to wait for the baby to come on her own.
We received the telephone call early Wednesday morning at 4:30a.m. alerting us that today, my birthday, was the day this sweet child would be born.
We arrived at the hospital shortly after 6:00 and Paige Emmaline arrived at 8:33.
She is our third Grandchild. Each one of them very dear to my heart. The sweetest is that we will always share this day and it will always be a special bond between us.
As I held her in my arms tonight I marveled at the handiwork of our Almighty God and thank Him for sending her to us to care for and teach. There will be wonderful times ahead that we will experience and share, and I am so excited to see this little girl explore and discover life!
And I will be there alongside her all the way!!<3
