Happy Birthday Katy! (a day late)

Katy and I took an English class together in college. We thought we were smart an efficient because we would take turns going to class and fill each other in on the lecture. We did a research paper and report on alternative childbirth together. Our teacher asked us if we would practice alternative childbirth methods when we became mothers. Back then it seemed ages before either of us would actually be making our own decisions on childbirth. Katy was the first to marry and the first to begin bringing children into this world. She has experienced all sorts of methods of bringing children into this world. I was able to attend the birth of Olive, Katy and Ryan's third daughter. Katy amazed me (even more so after I myself gave birth). No matter what method of childbirth Katy chose with each new baby she did it with grace and reverence. This is why I admire Katy, no matter what she does, she does it with a grace and reverence for life. Thank you for your example Katy, love Ashley.
