Through many dangers toils and cares, I have already come, His grace has brought me safe thusfar and grace will lead me home. Amazing Grace
My eyes were closed and the midwife said, you might want to see this. I wasn't sure that I wanted to see the baby being born? She said why else would you choose to do natural childbirth if you don't want to see. I had a list of other reasons. They forced me to look. So I am sure that they didn't switch her at birth. Pascack Valley Hospital birthing rooms. Beautiful dim lights and family friendly enjoyment. The baby came out nearly talking. She smiled in the first moments at my mother and my father and Muffy who came to see the first cousin to the initial grandchild. Here I was a tiny baby and me and my husband and lots of hopes and dreams and cares and ambitions. I am grateful for the beautiful, godly woman that the little speckled bundle that came out of me that day has become. She is careful and deliberate in her faith and her pursuits. She is a friend and a joyful helper in the family. I could never have hoped for as much as I received from the Lord that day.
Happy Birthday, LISHKA!
