Day of Birth

I found this picture from November 16, 1984...

Kind of a wrinkly little cutie, aren't I?! :)

Then I went back into pictures of my own 3 babes from the days of their birth...

The day we enter the world should be a day of so much joy and hope. Its not always the case. But as a mother who spends much of her own birthday looking back to the days of birth that I have been a part of, I know that each of those days is a day I will never forget.

Through their lives, whether long or short, my own children teach me more about who God is, who I am and what is possible through love, than I could have otherwise known. And today, I am thankful for the days of their birth.


  1. Jamie and I are 2.5 months apart, and you're right between us. 1984 was a good year. :) Happy Birthday!

  2. You, Emma, and Hazen all look so much like your baby pictures. I'm sure when I see Jairus in heaven I'll recognize him right away too!
