My sweet sweet Madison


Today I want to write about my sweet daughter...Madison Grace. She was born March 1st 1997 on an Air Force Base in Florida. She came on her due date...she is very scheduled now that I think about it. It was a sunny day....and the temp was in the 70's....I remember my azalea bush had just bloomed pink. I went into labor the night before and struggled with it for 11 hours. They thought she would be around 7 pounds...well WRONG....she was 9 pounds 1 ounce 20 inches long...and had a head full of hair. She was and still is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.

Today is her birthday and she is 10. I cant believe how she has grown. One minute they are in diapers and the next they are cheering for a football game for little league. Time sure goes by so fast. Faster than expected. We have our ups and downs...but she is the sparkle in my eye. I would give my life for her. Throughout the years I have learned a few things....one is as a mother know matter how hard life gets or how complicated things are....your kids ground you spiritually. I pray Madison has learned from me respect, and compassion from me. She is such a great little girl. Very outgoing, loves life and and most of all loves her God.

Happy Birthday Baby,
Mom

What a beautiful tribute and your daughter is lovely. Happy Birthday. BTW - 9 lbs - was it natural? My daughter (now 23) was a little over 9 lbs, full head of hair but I had a C-section.

She's adorable. Happy Birthday to her. You're right - her eyes DO sparkle! And you're also right about how fast ten years flies by.

Nine pounds! Good grief! :-)
