Born just past midnight on March 27, 1974.
1979 – 5 years old – No wonder I loved taking pictures of my girls… they posed so perfectly. That darling outfit was a gift from Mama Trudy.. pink gingham blouse and patchwork print skirt with a lace ruffle on the bottom over a pink gingham underskirt. So adorable.
Followed by four years at the University of Oklahoma getting her degree in sociology and playing basketball, which also is a blur and so much fun.
Where has the time gone???
LaNae, I am so proud of you and the woman you have become. You are a joy to my life, my heart and my soul.
Thirty-eight. How can that be? You are so beautiful. I am so blessed.
It’s currently 11:44 PM March 26 and I’m having ghost labor pains and remembering walking all over the mall in Corsicana, Texas, for hours before going to the hospital with you. I had dilated to 5 cm when I walked into the hospital about 9:00 PM. The nurse wanted to know how I got up to OB/delivery and where was my wheelchair. “I walked.. rode the elevator up to the 3rd floor.” Also, remembering Colleen DuBose, the admittance clerk who, after she got off work, came up to delivery to be with me when you were born. I worked with her at the clinic and admitting patients to the hospital was her second job. Being with Mama Trudy these last few months has really got me walking down memory lane.
It is now March 27th!
Have a super fabulous day, LaNae!
