~WAITING FOR BABY #2 ARRIVAL~
Visiting Nebraska Summer 1984
(My Eyes Are ALWAYS Shut!)
Had it ever been required, I would have gladly given up any other earthly love for my children. From the very beginning of their lives they've been my heart's song. I love them with the whole of who I am and more.
FOREVER SIDE BY SIDE
Adrienne and Her Daddy - 1984
Today my beautiful daughter, Adrienne, turns 28. Seems like yesterday I held her in my arms...today she towers over me having grown into a simply gorgeous young woman. I'm so proud of her.
~A DREAM BABY~
Coming Home - 1984 (Car Seat is in FRONT!)
Can't help but share with you a few photos from our past...so wishing there had been digital cameras back then. I've added captions to the pictures as I reflect back upon the days they were taken...

Baby Adrienne and Mommy With Her Eyes Shut (Again!)
Taking this trip down memory lane brings back to my mind so many wonderful moments spent with family...
~OUR YOUNG FAMILY - EASTER - 1985
With Gramma and Grampa N.
Life has a way of scurrying by, doesn't it? When I think of the blessings upon my life none have been so dear to me than those that surround me becoming a mom.
DADDY'S FAVORITE PIC - 1986
This picture was snapped in front of a home we almost purchased in Yukon, OK. Brandon was four and Adrienne was almost 2! If I'm being honest these days were some of my most favorite of all I've lived. Simple, carefree and broke!

My Girl and I
Happy Birthday, Adrienne! I hope and pray someday you experience the joy and pride of being a mother for yourself. My relationship with you has been one of the sweetest I've ever known and you bless me more than I can say. Thank you for being such an awesome daughter and for the deep love you show your family and friends. We hope one day to deserve your grace and goodness.
Love you MOST! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Blessings as you celebrate the lives of those you love.
Love to you...
