Happy Birthday Nathan!


Today we celebrated Nathan's 13th birthday, it seems like only yesterday that he was born. I remember my my daughter Sarah, calling at 11:00 p.m. to tell me her water had broke and they were heading to the hospital. I said "Should I come yet?" She said "No, we'll call you". I waited, and waited, and waited! I sat by the phone in the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the call to come, I thought, hmmmmmmmm it must be they want to do this without me. Finally at 5:00 a.m. Chad, Nathan's Dad called and said "Sarah wants her Mom". Needless to say I was ready to go, my hubby put on his pants and we were at the hopital in 10 minutes. I was able to see Sarah in agony, thank God, for only 10 minutes before she gave birth to Nathan. He is, and has always been a joy, and I am am proud to be his Grandma! Happy 13th birthday Nate, I love you!
