~~~~~~~CELEBRATING ADRIENNE~~~~~~~ Happy Birthday To My Girl

 
~ADRIENNE'S BABY SHOWER~
September 30, 1984

Days passed...seasons changed...months melted into years.  I stand here today looking back upon my life and without a doubt one of the most beautiful moments I've ever experienced was the birth of my daughter.  From the minute I found out I was going to be a mommy for the second time I secretly hoped (and prayed) for a baby girl...
~EVERYTHING WAS YELLOW~
(except my dress!)

I always wanted a big family, but I didn't fare so well while pregnant so I knew baby number two was going to be our last child.  On the morning of our baby's birth I was prepped for surgery and only barely conscience when I heard my Mr. AGPMan whisper into my left ear "Ten fingers and ten toes, honey... (insert audible gasp here) And IT'S A GIRL! Baby...God answered our prayers and gave us our heart's desire..."
~LAST SPRING~
(Girls Night Out - Oklahoma Ballet)

I can say without any reservation everything I've done in my life and any amount of success I may have achieved will forever remain second best to the joy of being the mother of my two children.  No job, no task, no pillow, sachet or painted pink rose will ever fill my heart up like they do.

Today my daughter turns 27.  In many ways it seems like she just came into the world.  No doubt she has changed the course of my life.  As a young mom I had all these things I wanted to show her and teach her about living.  I find it nothing short of amazing that it's been she who has been the teacher.  Full of grace and love, my girl possesses the most benevolent spirit of anyone I've ever known.  Beautiful, kind and incredibly big-hearted...
~ADRIENNE and MICAH~

Someday I hope to be more like her.

"Happy Birthday, Adrie!  Today I'm praying God's blessings upon you as you continue to seek God's best for your life.  Thank you for always showing your daddy and I so much love and respect and for the honor you've brought into our family.  May His peace cover you today as you celebrate your blessed day.  I love you most... Mom"

~~*~~
Blessings as you celebrate the lives of those you love.  Remember the heart isn't judged by how much it loves but by how much it is loved by others...

Love to you...

They sure do grow up fast! I am blessed with 2 girls who are now in their 30's. Where did that precious time go? When did they grow up so quickly to become such amazing women? I truly know how you feel. Happy birthday to your daughter and happy day to you as her loving mom!

Happy Birthday to your girl! I feel the exact same way about the birth of our two. Adults now, but on every birthday I reminisce on our precious time with them so far. They are so special.

Happy, Happy Birthday to your beautiful, wonderful daughter! You are a wonderful Mom and thus, because of your mothering, you have been blessed with a wonderful daughter....and I think that goes back at least one full generation because I have heard you speak fondly of your own Mom. God bless your "baby". xo Diana

Happy birthday to your beautiful daughter. This was such a touching post. They grow up so fast. My daughter was born in 1983 and sometimes it seems like yesterday. I too 'secretly' prayed for a girl for my first child and I was so blessed to have my prayers answered. God is good.

Hugs
