Happy Birthday to the person I love the most!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Lane Realty GREC# 169695

Sometimes it feels like it was forever ago and sometimes it feels like it just just a short time ago.  But 24 years ago today was when my world changed forever.  I became a mom.  It was at 4:15 in the afternoon that my little bundle of joy arrived and every year at 4:15 I call her to wish her happy birthday!  This year was no exception.  She had just stepped out of class and was headed to pick up her car from an oil change and then head on to finish her regular 24 shift.

She's always been an over achiever.  Driven to be he best at what she does, no matter what something is at the time.  Currently she has a full class load, a full time job and is working on 300 clinical hours for school and is a volunteer fire fighter in the county she lives.  She's always on the go. 

She's going to be finishing up Medic school in December and maybe she'll take a little break, but she doesn't plan to stop her education there.  She has wobbled once or twice about her career goal.  When she started college just one month after she finished high school she told me she going to be an athletic trainer.  I knew better.  I've always known she was meant to save lives.  And I still am so excited for her on a day she gets to do that.  I am also sad when not everyone makes it.  She's had some rough days at work and I'm so very proud of her.  No matter how sad one day makes her at work, she pulls herself together and keeps at it.

She's such a touch kid.  Although I know she's not a "kid" anymore she of course will always be my "itsy bitsy tiny baby".  I wasn't even aware when she started training to be a fire fighter.  I have to admit I wasn't trilled.  But I'm still proud of her.  I worry of course every single day.  Even on her off days I never know when her fire pager will go off. 

So I'd like to ask you to do things. 

  1. Join me in wishing my Abigail a very happy birthday
  2. Always pull over for emergency vehicles.

It could be my daughter driving that ambulance and I know the family that calls 911 wants any emergency vehicle to arrive as quickly as possible and safely. And of course I want my daughter to be safe.

She has that glint in her eye. It's the same glint that you have, Tammy. Mischievous but kind and sweet underneath. I can see it. Happy birthday, Abigail.

Carla- no way I'm not a morning person.  I wouldn't have gotten up to go to the hospital at that time of morning.
