Hi Blog World,
Wow! 26th years in the making. Where did the time go? It seems just like yesterday, when I was a little girl I was wanting to know what it would be like to be in my 2o’s but now I know. Today has been so special. Filled with so many memories I will hold on to for the rest of my life. Today, I stopped and I watched a DVD of me in the NICU and then I stopped and thought about what one very special friend has been saying to me, “Amanda, there are a lot of people who have it worse than you.” As I watched this video and thought about what she has and is going to continue saying, I know she’s right. 26 years ago I was fighting for my life. My parents, doctors, nurses, family, and friends weren’t sure what would happen or what the future had in store for this baby who only weight 1 pound, 5 oz. and was only 12 in. long. But you know what? I’m lucky…I’m here.
With that being said, like I do every year, I want to take this time to thank the doctors, nurse and people who helped save my life. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you everyone for the great day.
