giuliana marie 7.26.12 3:18 a.m.

it was a day that seemed like at least 3..to me...and i didn't labor

my sister shannon, 11 years my junior...a sister that i helped raise, and love, and nurture...she became  a mother once more on july 26, 2012.  after 21 hours of labor giuliana marie met this world.  i met her in the wee hours of the morning. after my sister had given her all. after i saw shannon stronger than ever.  after praying and pain and laboring...my niece was in my arms, and my sister was spent.  

i held this new baby and felt heaven.  i saw God's hand, and i knew...

this world has been blessed.
