Happy Birthday Maggie!
35 years ago on June 30th at 5:25 pm I was blessed with a 9lb 8oz baby girl. I am so proud of my beautiful daughter. She has grown up to become a wonderful wife and mother. She volunteers at The Boys and Girls Club helping teach children photography and computer. She takes care of baby wild animals for wild animal rescue until they are able to be released back into the wild. She is a loving big sister to Melody and Megan. She is always there to listen and give strength when I need it. She and her husband are in the process of adopting a child from China. She always has enough love to go around for everyone. She took her talent of art and furthered her education to become a graphic artist and designer. I am so blessed God gave her as my first born. She and I grew together and I learned how special being a mom is through her. Her love of God and family can be felt just by being around her for a few minutes. The doctor told us we were having a boy and we painted the nursery blue and had all boy clothes but I said a silent prayer to God. I ask him for a daughter as I didn't know anything about taking care of little boys. I had babysat my nieces alot so knew a little about little girls. God answered my prayer and gave me a very precious, loving, caring, smart , talented daughter. So Happy Birthday My Number One Daughter. May your birthday be as special as you. I am sure your daddy is looking down with a big smile on his face and pride in his heart for his first baby girl. And as we use to say to each other over 30 years ago..... I love you most and morest and oodles and unches!
