Well today we celebrated our youngest daughter's sixteenth birthday. Could it really BE sixteen YEARS??? I remember so clearly the events of that day. She was born on September 11, 1992. Sixteen years to the day since I had joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It was a joyful day. I was SO glad not to be pregnant. I mean really glad! We lived in Utah at the time, and I went through the ENTIRE summer pregnant. It's hot in Utah in the summer time for those of you who have never been there. She was born ON her due date, which for me was a first.
I look at this beautiful, graceful, funny, sweet girl, and I feel grateful daily for her. I feel very blessed to be her mother.
