The following was written 8 years ago and posted to FB. I’m dusting it off again as a reminder of perseverance. Everyone needs a “day you were born” story. This year 2020 will go down as one to remember. Not seeing the forest for the trees, we’re knee deep in it. Minute by minute. Experience tells me we’ll look back on this day maybe not fondly but differently. This too shall pass. Always ♥️. Without further ado …
12/15/12 – FB On This Day
15 years ago today was a Monday. I went to work as usual; left to a late afternoon doctor’s appt only to be told, we are admitting you today!!! My mind was somewhere between panic and exhilaration. So much different than the first time around. Almost 10 years older but wiser (or so I thought). My parents were out of town at my Uncle Martin’s funeral. We were a week early; this was not part of the plan but looking back I realize that God’s plan worked exactly as intended for us on this day.
At 10:50 pm, Lulu Belle Dub made her entrance into the world and our lives were forever changed for the better. God gave us this sweet precious angel to take away the pain that was to follow five weeks later when we lost my mom.
Thank you facebook friends for my indulgence as I re-live this day with such bittersweet memories for me and my family. Make amends, pay it forward, and be grateful!! Tis the season!!! XOXOXO
