Happy Birthday, Marcy!

It's birthday time again in our family. 34 years ago today I gave birth to our second child, another daughter. We were thrilled! I was almost 23 and our Kimmy was not yet 2. Wow, I was a busy Mom! And a young one to boot! Marcy was a very good baby. She was so calm and easy going that I would jokingly say "now where did I put the baby"!! Marcy grew up to be my helper when I gave birth to more babies. She was almost 5 when her brother came along. She wasn't sure she wanted someone else to be the baby of the family. I remember her asking me if I would still love her. Awww! She was 12 when the twins were born and 17 when Ellen was born. Marcy is gifted in seeing a need and being able to know what to do to meet that need. I was so blessed to have her help while she lived at home!

In 1998 Marcy was in a tragic boating accident. It almost took her life. She survived but has life altering effects from the accident. She is a paraplegic. Did she let that get her down? Nope. She lives her life to the fullest. In 2003 she married her love, Scott. She went to college and has a degree in Special Education. She is the Mommy to sweet Paityn. Marcy is a wonderful Mommy! Marcy is an inspiration to so many, including me, her Mom. Love you, Marcy! And Happy, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Marcy. Thank you for following your dreams after such a life changing accident. I imagine having a sweet mom and big family helped. And now you are the sweet mom. I love that.

Thanks for sharing, Doris.

Fondly,
Glenda

Thanks mom! Don't have a cake yet but may have to go get one. Paityn certainly thinks we need a cake. We have your birthday to celebrate next!

Happy Birthday to your gorgous daughter! How inspiring to hear her story and her comeback from that tragic accident! I know that she is the best Mommy because she sure has a great role model!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

What a great post!! I remember the first time we saw her sweet face in the bedroom of your Mastersonville house. Thirty-four years ago. Yikes!!

What a girl! You forgot to mention that she's drop-dead gorgeous!
