Most Memorable Birthday

Posted by navyhawkins on September 5, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Birthdays! I love them! The older I get the better they get.  So many memories.  There was the time I thought my friends hated me because they ran from me in the mall (the were doing a surpirse party for me), Or the time we had to cancel my party because of a snowstorm (my birthday is in mid-April)

But I think my most memorable one was 5 years ago, we were struggling to have a child and I wasn’t getting any younger so the thought of another year child free was not a happy one.

My parents gave me a Keruig that year. I went home, brewed my first k-cup and got horribly sick. I blamed them for food poisioning. The next morning, Ibrewed another k-cup and sick again. Well, you guessed it, wasn’t food poisioning,   I was pregnant! God answered our prayers and 36 weeks later, I gave birth to my oldest daughter! It wasn’t an easy pregnancy but I have 2 little miracles (K2 came almost 3 years after K1) and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

What is your most memorable birthday?

Goal Setting

Posted by navyhawkins on September 2, 2016 in Uncategorized |
