Happy 18th Birthday Sage

18 Years Ago

I was in labor at Baptist East in Memphis, TN doing pretty well. After giving birth to Douglas, I was pretty prepared for birth this go around. Of course none of my children ever came naturally so I was always induced. I was on my pitocin drip, most of my family was in Gulf Shores for the holiday weekend--- Memorial Weekend. I was surrounded by a small group of family and friends and little bit Sage came into the world at 4:20 p.m. She came into the world very easy and she has been that way every since.

If the way your child comes into the world sets the tone for the way the child's personality will be, then she has proved that to be true. She is graduation next week and then we get ready for her to attend Mississippi State in the Fall. So far away, but so proud of her.

Happy Birthday Sage!
