It was 31 years ago that you came into my life and each day I have watched you grow into this wonderful woman. I remember getting up that morning at about 5am with some stomach pain and realizing that I was in labor I woke your dad up. We went to St. Joseph's Hospital in Bryan, Texas at 7am and you were worn at 1215pm. You were 20 and 1/2 inches long and weighed 10lbs 9ozs and you entered the world with a lusty cry. You were independent as a toddler and would insist on "I do it byself mommy( not a typo... it was always byself and not myself). Your will was awesome even at that age and it has carried you through your life when faced with difficulty. You never let anything stand in your way and used stumbling blocks as stepping stones to reach your goals. You are so steadfast in your loyalty to family and friends. Rebekah I love you more than the stars in the sky, more than zebras, and more than all the grass. Happy birthday my sweet baby girl!!!
I have been a nurse for 40 years and have the sore feet to prove it. I am married(for 35 years) to Stanley and have two children: Rebekah(married to Shane) who is mother to Winston and the twins Patton and Aster and Joshua who is daddy to Aries and Allison. My daughter is a nurse practitioner and my son works in the hospitality field. We have three dogs who rule the roost in our home! I started writing my blog to keep family informed about my daughter's wedding and have kept it up with political comments, things that irritate me, and just whatever strikes my fancy. I have a life filled with work, joy and sometimes sadness. I hope that in reading my blog you can laugh at what life leads my way and empathize with the rare sorrow that happens.
