23 Years Ago Today...

I vividly remember the day! Don and Jamie (my brother and sister-in-law) were having their 3rd and final child. We had not found out if it was a boy or girl so we were all excited. Karen and I wanted Don to have a boy SO bad! We just thought that he needed a boy, after having 2 girls--every man needs a boy, don't they? Well. after waiting, out comes Don from the delivery room--guess what? Another Girl!!! I think Karen and I were disappointed but Don came out of that room pushing that girl like God didn't even make boys!!! Needless to say, Karen and I got over the boy issue quickly and life has not been the same since Donna Leigh came into our world. She is slightly spoiled (aren't we all?) but she is a great girl! She always makes you feel good when you are around her, even if she doesn't! She is a great daughter, sister, granddaughter,neice, cousin and friend.

I wish I was in Montgomery to share her birthday with her today! But since that is not possible, I'll just send my love, Leigh---you are a special young lady and I hope you have a great day and a wonderful life!!! Love, Gin-Gin

PS She is an avid Tennessee Fan!!!!!!!!
