30 Years ago today!!!

30 years ago today I gave birth to a wonderful daughter!! That’s right Sarah turns 30 today. I remember the night she was born so well almost as if it were yesterday.

Sarah–one hour old!!

Sarah– now at 30 years old!

Sarah has always been the best daughter a Mom could have. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her so I won’t even try. In 5 months or so she will give birth to a child of her own. I still can’t believe I’m that freakin’ old. WTF happened? It all went by so fast. Well, that must mean I have had a good life so far and I would have to say that is true. I still have so much to look forward to. I just wish time would slow up a little. I guess I can’t stop time though.

Anyway I wish my daughter the happiest of birthdays. I love her more than words can say!!

Happy New year everyone!!! I love you all too!!!! All this freakin love. I am such a sap. Ha! Ha!

    Happy birthday to Sarah. What a beautiful daughter and mom-to-be.
    Just ’cause you’re going to be a grandma doesn’t mean you’re old my friend 🙂
    Happy new year, it’s going to be a blessed one for you and your family in many ways.

    Happy Birthday Sarah!
    Time flies when you are having fun! I always tell people that my birthday never bothers me, it’s the kid’s birthdays that make me feel old!

    Hey, I’m a grandma and I’m not old!! So you don’t have to be either.

    Happy birthday to Sarah! May it be one of the best ever! Much to celebrate. I think birthdays are the best celebration – and most important -throughout the year. We get to celebrate how special that person is in our lives and recognize just how much joy they bring to us.

    You don’t need to tell us how crazy you are about her, we can tell from your posts. I’m sure she’ll share the same relationship with your grand baby.

    Happy Birthday Sarah and Happy New Years to the whole Whatever I Think family, you guys are in for some exiting times. Can’t wait to read about them.

    Aww, sweet post! Wishing Sarah a VERY happy 30th birthday! We are almost the same age (I turned 30 in March). She looks amazing in that photo, she has the pregnancy glow 😉
    I think it’s awesome that you can’t think of enough wonderful things to say about her, it just shows the beautiful relationship you guys have (which is always evident in your posts).

    Happy New Year to you and ALL your family (bubs included)! I know 2009 is going to be an AMAZING year for you all!

    Happy Birthday Sarah, and Happy New Year to all of you too! The Big Three Oh!!

    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful sappiness with us. Oldness is a state of mind, and I often wonder WTF happened too. I’m convinced that someone has been fiddling with the speed dial on the Time Machine for a decade or two now.
