The only career I even wanted was being a mom.
Well, ok, to be honest there was one career I thought about briefly.....
a baton twirler...seriously.
After numerous times of throwing it up and having it come down on my head,
I thought being a "only" a mother would be easier!
38 years ago this morning at 11:38 the Lord blessed me with a beautiful
healthy "Big" little girl, 8lb 15 oz
after 32 hours of labor and emergency c-section.

Then she brought Mike to meet us.
My first reaction was "oh no, not this one"!
I thought he was way too good looking, would break her heart.
I am so grateful that I was TOTALLY WRONG.
This is one of my favorites of the Danks family!
Yes, it is taken almost 3 years ago.
The baby, Dylan, will be three the end of the month!
The Lord blessed me abundantly that day in January 1974
and a child is always your child no matter how old they are.
I love you Heather Lee Danks.
Thank you for the joy of being your mother.
