Yesterday we celebrated my Dad's 73rd Birthday. A few weeks ago we all wondered if he would be here to celebrate. Dad is our Miracle Man! Due to his faith and the wonderful medical technology that the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota offers, he is alive today. Necrotizing pancreatitis is a life changing experience. Kind of scary to see how life can change in an instant all because of one gall stone.

And in September, I was so blessed to be able to connect with the awesome people at Bloggy Conference in Cincinnati! The people that I meet each day continue to bless me in ways I never, ever dreamed possible. I have met many of you through social media and I must add- you each bless me each day in your own way- I am so blessed!

The first part of September I was able to sneak away from the hospital, in Rochester, to hit the road with my hubby and youngest son to take in a New England Patriot's football game. Yep, my first NFL football game- in Nashville, Tennessee! This was our birthday present to Garrett, so I knew I had to make it happen, and I did. A fast, fun road trip.
Life is fun and I am thankful that each of you are a part of my life! And then there is this beautiful lady who is a surgeon at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, her name is Dr. Mariela Rivera.
This is the amazing surgeon who made it possible for my Dad to be here to celebrate his 73rd birthday and to be here with me on my 46th birthday! Life is good folks- Enjoy each day. My birthday is filled with so many blessings this year and I look forward to sharing the next year with each of you. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
