Doesn't God give the best gifts?
I guess, considering I was in labor for most of my birthday (she arrived after lunch), I gave myself God's gift to me. *wink-grin*
Just pure joy!!
So many people tease us about sharing a birthday...saying that Emily "took" my special day. I stare at them and think: Seriously?
As if any of us doesn't share our special day with somebody else. There are only 365 days in a year, 365 different chances to be born on a different day. Emily and I were born on the SAME day. If we believe we are preordained to be born at a certain point in time (and we do), then before I was born God had already decided Emily's birthday, too. It just hadn't happened yet.
And really. How cool is that???

So on this, OUR special day -- yours and mine -- I celebrate YOU, sweet girl!
No regrets ever.
No sadness ever.
Pure joy always!!
HaPpY HaPpY HaPpY dAy To YoU, EMILY SUSANNE FOOTE!
