30 Years Ago Today...

...my life changed completely. And for the better. Thirty years ago today my daughter was born!

I don't think anyone really knows or understands parents until you become a parent yourself. I never knew what it meant to have the instinct to love, protect and nurture another individual until I became a mother. Oh, I don't mean to discount being a wife or having a wonderful relationship with a husband at all. There's just something about being a parent that makes you reach a bit further into yourself.
And today, my Darling Daughter is 30! Happy Birthday, Kelly! Both Dad and I sure wish we could be there with you to celebrate this event in your life. We'll just have to celebrate when we are there in December. (Boy, we'll have a lot to celebrate then, won't we?)

I am so very glad to have you in my life. It wouldn't have been as happy, trying, exciting, educational, and blessed without you! Happy Birthday, Sweetie! I love you more than you will ever know.
