My life really began when I became a Mom. I was 26 years old when our daughter Ashlee Renee was born – on a hot and sticky day (August 6th, 1987) in New Castle, PA. I will never forget the experience of being pregnant in the heat – or seeing my once flat tummy get bigger and bigger. There were so many “firsts” with that baby – and I remember each and every one. Ashlee has always been a very beautiful girl – inside and out. She has been given some great gifts – the greatest is her ability to work and create with her hands – and her awesome sense of humor. She is loved by all she comes in contact with.
Ashlee was 4 years old when our son, Shawn Tyler was born on a fall evening (October 5th, 1991) in Fortuna, CA. He was and still is a very special child with his peaceful and tranquil personality. God has gifted him with many gifts – athletic and musical – and he has a natural way with people – gets along with the young and old – he is greatly admired and loved by all.
I feel honored to be the “Mom” to these incredible “gifts”. My life is richer because of them. I love you Ashlee and Shawn. You are my life. ♥
