My baby is 40 today - Happy Birthday Janie - Forty years ago I was sitting up in bed marvelling at the sight of a tiny daughter in the cot beside me. We already had a much adored son and had never imagined that we would have a daughter to adore too. I had 4 brothers, Alan had 3 brothers, all our brothers had sons (not a girl on the horizon) so I shall never forget Alan's face when he looked back at me and said, "It's a girl"
It does not seem 5 minutes since Janie was waiting to go to university (dressed in red in photos) Where did those years go? As all Mothers know, you hold your new born child in your arms one minute and the next thing you know they are celebrating their 40th birthday. What a blessing that is, as not every child reaches that milestone, so today I will be thinking of all the highlights of those years and thanking God for every single one of them.
For those who have enquired about Alan's progress - he will be having further investigations - op/procedure on the 22nd July so we still have a while to wait. Not an easy time as I know many of you know from your own experiences. Thanks you so much for your concern and prayers - it means a lot.
