Happy Sunday! Welcome to the DIY Sunday Showcase 08.09.
Today is my youngest daughter’s birthday, so I have to tell her birth story. Because of complications, a C-Section was scheduled for August 8. That means her birthday should have been 8.8.88. I was thrilled. How easy is that to remember? It’s the same day that Fergie, the Dutchess of York’s daughter, Beatrice, was born.
I was prepped and rolled into surgery at Tift Regional Medical Center in Tifton, GA on the 8th of August. Just as they were about to begin, there was a horrible crash on I-75 involving a church van full of teens. Because the hospital wasn’t huge, they needed every operating room, so I was rolled back to my room and Caitlin Alli was born on 08.09.88. I gladly gave up that dream birthdate so that those teens could be patched up.
Happy Birthday, Caitlin! (Here’s a selfie we took together a while back as we walked out the door for church on a Sunday morning)
My favorite from last week’s party is The Ultimate Roadside Rescue Ugly Chair from A Vision to Remember. I’m amazed at how that ugly ducking was turned into a beautiful swan! I’ve decided to keep my eyes peeled for ugly chairs on the side of the road.
