The Best Birthday Present!!!

Well, I'm 27 today! I keep thinking 30 is just around the corner, but since Monica is 30 and loving it, I guess I'll survive the change. :) For the past 6 years when I have blown out my birthday candles, I have wished for a baby. I'm so thankful that the Lord answered my long awaited prayer and blessed me with a baby. I cannot get over His goodness to me! There really is not a day that goes by that I don't remember the agonizing prayers that I offered up day and night for a child. I look at Harrison every day as a monument to God's goodness and love in answering the imploring cry of His child. I grow to love Him more everyday.
So, if you are wondering what I wished for this year, well, Jesse sure guessed it right away...I wished for many more children! Not necessarily NOW, but sooner than 6 more years of waiting! :) Harrison is such a joy that I wouldn't mind having 10 more! (I really was born to be a mother, since some think I'm crazy for wanting 4 children...including Jesse who thinks of the financial side of having 4 children...I'm just thinking of how much I love Harrison and can't wait to love other children too!) So, today is the BEST birthday I've ever had, because I've been given the BEST present (besides eternal life, of course!)...and maybe besides Jesse :)

So...I'm your BFF, right??? You mentioned me in your post and let me just say that since I am now "30 and loving it..." along with 30 is being so wrapped up in life along with memory loss... I didn't personally call you on your birthday. Princess...I am a horrible BFF, please forgive me!!!!
