Life’s Greatest Miracle – My Daughter

Yesterday was a very special day and  I wanted to share this yesterday, but I was busy celebrating  and thanking God for the miracle of life that many of us take for granted.

Seventeen years ago July 5 I gave birth  to a beautiful baby girl. After delivery I was told that she and I almost didn’t make it.  I had pregnancy complications. The placenta was coming away from the wall and I was experiencing heavy bleeding and my daughter was becoming distressed.

Thankfully she was delivered and my daughter has now grown into a beautiful young woman. Placental abruption, is a devastating disorder and I thank God that my daughter and I are both alive today to enjoy the beauty of life.

Life really is beautiful and each of us should enjoy our existence.

I’ve watched my daughter grow from a baby to a beautiful young woman who I could not be prouder of.  My daughter truly is a gift that God has blessed me with.  The birth of my daughter has brought me so many mixed emotions from  fear to complete happiness. I can not imagine life without her. I don’t think she even understands the depth of my love. There is a depth beyond feeling.  A special love that only a mother knows.

Yesterday not only did I delight in celebrating my daughter’s 17 birthday with her I delighted in celebrating the miracle of life.

To my precious daughter, please remember that wherever you go in life, there I am right there by your side. Always remember, I love you. Happy 17th Birthday.
