What seems to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise. ~ Oscar Wilde
I don’t normally post anything on Saturdays but today is a special day.
You see, 19 years ago today I was taken to the Peter Lougheed Hospital here in Calgary.
The doctor was worried.
Things weren’t the way they were supposed to be.
I was classified as “high risk” and had been undergoing numerous tests over the last 3 months.
I’d been so worried, but worrying was just adding stress and stress was exactly what I didn’t need.
I’d been given strict orders to rest, be still and calm.
I was going out of my mind.
I was restless and all this quiet time just made me think more…
and thinking more stressed me out!
But there’s a happy ending to my story.
At 6:50 pm, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter.
The doctor came to see me the next morning to congratulate us.
He hadn’t been hopeful – but we made it.
My girl’s a fighter.
She was born a fighter and she’s a strong young woman today.
Happy Birthday Angel Girl – I love you so very much!
And here for your birthday is one of my favourite photo session memories
