Another year has passed

On April 7th, some years ago at 2:00pm Central time I came into this world. Sometimes it doesn't seem like that long ago when I was just a young girl with not so many worries; other times it already feels like a lifetime has gone by. Sometimes I wish things had gone differently as I look back, but I know that everything happens for a reason. So while my life hasn't been perfect, I do know that "The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me..." ~ Psalm 138:8



Here are some pictures (that I have on this computer) of me at various stages in life.

Here is a 4 generation picture of me (in the stroller, in case you couldn't tell!), my mom, Grandma White, and Great-Grandma Skaggs.



A few years down the road. The top picture is my sister and I with my Grandma & Grandpa. The other pics are me :-)



This is me and my friend around April 2002 ... we were waiting for the field op to start.




Here's me, Karah, and Vincent also around April 2002. This was such a fun shoot.



Here is Brian & I on our wedding day - December 18, 2003






And here we are present day - well, "present" being March 24, 2008, with Brian & myself, Karah, Brian Lee, & Vincent.



Brian was able to call me today (my birthday, I should say) - twice as a matter of fact. Once was a little befor 2am and then again at about 10:30am (EST). It definitely made the day go much better. Along with a couple from church that were kind enough to take me out to a birthday lunch at Cracker Barrel. Of course, what fun is it to go to a restaraunt on someone's birthday and not embarrass them? None at all! So I got sung "Happy Birthday" to and had a chocolate cobbler (Oh my goodness! Soooo yummy!). So I did have some birthday cake and ice cream and a good time of fellowship.
