HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGAN!

If I knew what I knew now I would do it all over again.
When I found out I was pregnant with you I was excited that God was going to entrust another to our care.
Then the day arrived. I told Dad at supper time that today was ‘the day’
He told me to be sure to come to the field and tell him when things progressed.
I was sure we had a lot of time, as that was the case for Josh and Jen.
I went home, put your brother and sister to bed and waited for your dad to come home.
It was damp weather outside and I was sure he wouldn’t be able to combine too much longer,
but the time dragged on.
As thing started rapidly progressing, I figured I should go and get your dad.
So I woke up Josh and Jen, packed our things and drove to the field.
When I got there I flashed my lights and your dad came roaring across the field with the tractor.
We went to your grandparents, where dad changed and showered.
We left Josh and Jen there and headed to the hospital.
It was around 11:00 pm
We got to the hospital at 12:00 and there were times where I thought we might not make it.
Things were moving along very quickly.
We got all settled in the hospital and by 1:00 am you had made your grand entrance.
It was love at first sight. You looked like a little Eskimo with your dark fuzzy head
and perfectly round face.
We were excited to have you join our life and our family.
Your brother and sister were very excited to meet you to and it didn’t take long for you to fit right in!
You were a perfect baby, hardly cried at all.
As you grew up we laughed over your cute little ways and the things you would say.
By then your little sister Kerri was born and you loved to sing to her.
You had the cutest expressions and said things in such a unique way.
You still had that perfect little round face and dark brown curly hair.
The years flew by, full of growing, learning, discipline.
And here you are today, 14 already.
I can’t believe how time has flown, yet we have so many good memories.
You and I are a lot alike, so much so that we annoy each other sometimes:) You have heard so many times that you even look like me,
I hope that hasn’t given you a complex :-)
You have become such a responsible young girl.
You are a joy to have in our family.
We all appreciate that you usually know where everything is.
We are glad you like to take pictures (except maybe Josh)
and that you keep such good records of our family growing and changing.
I am so thankful that I don’t have to organize the change of season clothes
by myself, that you are always there to help.
I am especially thankful for your soft heart.
They way you are sensitive to the things of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that you will never lose that, and that your
desire will always be to serve God and put Him first in your life.
I look so forward to the time we have left together.
I am excited to see what God has in store for you.
Remember
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life
Proverbs 4:23
We love you Megan!
