Another Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to a special daughter.
The second child born to a young mother.
Born on a Monday at 10:23 AM
 at the Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, Michigan.
A move to this area and this hospital was unknown to me.
Her sister 17 months older then her was born in Michigan also
but at a big hospital in Detroit, Michigan.

It was wonderful to move back to my birthplace of Tennesee
when Beth was a baby.....

She was the little one that was constantly
smiling and would many times find something amusing
when we were together -she made her mom laugh like
no other child could do.

She is my horse girl.
Her father loved horses.
To this day she has a special relationship with him.

When I lived at the old farm house
I kept having thoughts of her being a veterinarian.
She loved animals and for years I was called
when anyone needed a home for their dog or kitten.
Everyone seemed to think since I lived in the country
that I had room for homeless animals.

Turned out Beth became a registered nurse.

My Beth
Happy Birthday
from your mama
