Yesterday was Abigail's fifth birthday! I can't believe that time has passed so quickly even on the days I felt would never end. Five years have passed.
Today it is snowing. In 2005, we were living in Michigan and we had a cold snap before Thanksgiving and for Thanksgiving it had warmed considerably. Though every indication and all the prayers said she would be a Thanksgiving baby, we went to the hospital a week later. I knew that this baby would come home in the snow. The day after she was born it was snowing and though it had tapered off by the time we drove away from the hospital, it was cold and snowy!
Today, twelve hours earlier than the predictions, it is snowing.
Today also starts our Advent countdown. Half the envelops are filled with good December activities. Now I just have to find a place to hang them. Nothing like waiting till the last minute.
