On becoming 40...

In the mid morning hours at 9:56 am long ago, a young lady named Ann delivered a little baby girl, her first born weighing

8 lbs. 3 oz. Her Daddy and Momma prepared a nursery with the Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy theme. Momma sewed some red striped curtains with ric-rack, Daddy painted the nursery and painted and installed the little red shutters...
40 years ago today...

Yeah! Happy birthday! You are so young! Yikes, never thought I would think '40' was young, but when you are pushing 45 . . . We prayed this morning that all these rain drops would be as mercy and grace flowing down on you today! Love you so much!
