I love this idea.....to each day post something that I am grateful for. Because let's face it, life with 3 kiddos gets crazy and sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what I am thankful for.
So here it goes..........day 1.
Today I am especially grateful for Hannah. She turned 12 today.
I really thought we were destined to not have children. 6 years into our marriage, she was a huge blessing/miracle/surprise. I had honestly thought that perhaps we were not meant to have our own biological children. And that was okay with me. I knew that somewhere there was a child that was meant to be in my arms.
Then I found out I was pregnant and Kevin and I couldn't have been any happier.
And on Halloween of 2000 she decided she may want to come join us.
After 32 hours of labor and little to no progression Hannah was taken C-section. She was tiny (just right at 5 lbs.) and perfectly pink.
With her arrival my whole world changed.
So today I celebrate her 12th birthday and remind myself that I am truly grateful for being her mother.
Happy 12th Birthday Hannah Banana!!!!
