It was 21 years ago today at 4:12 am that I gave birth to my beautiful bundle of joy, swaddled in pink, Kristin Margaret Anne, weighing in at 3lbs 8 1/2oz and measuring 17 3/4in long. She was a miracle baby to me. 9 weeks early but perfect in every way. 10 fingers, 10 toes and everything where it was supposed to be. I can't believe that so much time has passed since that wonderful day. She is even more precious to me now. She is the most thoughtful, intelligent, powerful young woman that I have ever met. She is not only my daughter but also my best friend. I love her more than words or emotions can ever express. I believe that this is the first of her birthdays that I actually haven't seen her face...that makes me sad. I waited to call her because I knew that she had classes and she called me first. She wasn't very pleased with me because she thought I forgot her birthday! That isn't even possible. This is the best day of my life...the day I met my daughter. I love you baby girl, more than you will ever know and miss you when I am not with you. Hugs and kisses to you!
- 45 year old partnered with the love of my life, with a 28 year old daughter, 23 year old step-son, 19 year old step-son, 16 year old step-daughter, a 9 year old step-son and a 4 1/2 year old son. I now have 5 male cats and 1 female bunny that I adore. I had to rehome 2 kitties last September and 2 kitties passed away in November so things have been sad this past year. I love contests as I'm sure you can tell. I also love tattoos, looking at other peoples' and getting my own (I've had 17). I met the man of my dreams, living right next door! We plan to get married this year and to homestead within the next 2 years.
