Happy 19th Birthday!

On this day 19 years ago I woke up when my alarm went off with some pain that went away after a few minutes. At the time I was working for a phone company in the big city and worked off of commission. I needed 8 hours to make my $1,500 bonus so I WAS going to work. I was NOT in labor. 9 minutes later when my alarm went off again that pain came back. I decided this wasn't happening right now so I got up and jumped in the shower to start getting ready for work. Lets just say I was able to get half my makeup on before I admitted to myself that this was labor and I wasn't going to make it to work. The midwife was called and at 1:18pm Natalia came into the world. I remember thinking as they placed her in my arms, I have NO idea what I'm doing, there is NO way I could be in charge of another tiny little human seriously. Thankfully, God walked beside us as she grew up and in spite of all of our screw ups (which there were A LOT) she became this A-mazing God fearing young lady. We are SO grateful and blessed to call her our sweet girl. 

 Natalia in your 19th year our prayer is that you continue to look to Jesus in all you do. We love you more then you will ever know. What a blessing you are to us and our family. Have a great day! Happy Birthday!
