For those of you who do not know my eldest daughter, this is Tara-Lynn Sauders (nee Kelly).  Fourty two years ago today (and I remember it like it was yesterday) I was in labour awaiting the birth of our first child.  In 1976 it was not a given that a mother and father would know the sex of their baby through ultrasounds like they do today.  After 28 hours of labour our little girl was born and we named her Tara-Lynn Marie Kelly.  She weighed in at 7 lbs 14 1/4 oz.  I had never experience the kind of love that is so intense and immediate  between a mother and her newborn child.  It is not the kind of love that is present between a husband and wife – it was a special gift that God gives to a mother and father when they become a parent.  Every year at this time I remember those wonderful moments and it brings me so much joy!

So although I went a little off topic this evening  in this blog it feel it was worth it to dedicate this moment to Tara.  Happy Birthday Tara – you have become a beautiful and strong young women.

Have a good night everyone and may God bless!

I am married to the man of my life and best friend Earl Kelly. Over the years I have had a lot of hobbies and interests but as of late it is photography and travelling that I have developed a passion for. It has been our dream to own a motorhome and travel around the world getting to see new places and meet new people and their cultures and create memories to last us a life time. So here I am creating this Blog/Website to give me a channel to share our experiences with my photography and my description of our day to day travels. I hope that you will enjoy following me and I look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts and chatting with you about it all.https://wordpress.com/page/photography17782166.wordpress.com/18 www.shutterdudette.com
