Happy Birthday Chase and Paul!

Thirty-one…thirty-one…31…THIRTY-ONE!!!!  How did I let this happen?! I took a nap, woke up, and your were grown, independent, successful men.  I know that should make me happy, and it does, but man oh man how I miss my little blonde headed boys.  The two of you couldn’t wait to get started with your lives.  Arriving eight weeks early became of world of NICU, heart monitors for a year, countless doctor appointments, and very little sleep. I wouldn’t trade one single second of it.   When I would push you in my ‘double wide’ stroller, people would stop me and say, “I am so glad that it is you and not me.”  I would look them right in the eye and say, “Me too.  Jesus knows who to double bless.”
