Where Have 17 Years Gone?

Happy Fourth of July to everyone! This is always a very significant day for our family. The greatest reason is it is Savannah's birthday. She was born on July 4, 1989. The other reason is Scott runs the Peachtree Road Race every year. I have already blogged about that so that brings us to the big birthday.

How have 17 years flown by so fast? You always hear older people say, 'You will turn around and your children will be all grown'. Well, that is exactly what it feels like to know Savannah, our oldest, is now 17 years old. Scott had actually gone to run the race the morning I went to the hospital to have her. Our neighbor took me and Scott was able to run then get to the hospital. Savannah was born that day @ 3:05. One of the greatest days of our lives!!! She is a beautiful and special young lady inside and out. We are so proud of her and all she believes in. We are still in shock that she will be a senoir this year, but look forward to the amazing things God has planned for her life.

Our daughters always want to have a 'family party'. We were so happy to have them all here along with some friends to celebrate Savannah's special day. What a great day!!! Savannah's life has been blessed by them all.
