My Ride

In November of 2007, I had a 3 week old baby and was lying flat on my back in the hospital with blood clots in both lungs. 
I was 29 and not sure I'd see 30. 
But tomorrow, I'll be 32!

God bless you all, happy birthday to me
and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, screaming "Woo Hoo! what a ride!"


  1. Happy Birthday and sharing it with a Saint! Hope you enjoy your day.

  2. I am so glad you are around for another year with us Baby!! I look back at those days and thank God that He had His hand on you and our family through it all! You are the best wife and mom a family could ask for, me and the kiddos love you more every day and each passing year!

    Your Husband,
