December 11th. What a difference a year makes. Wow.
December 11th, 2012 I was giving birth to my baby on the carpet in the hallway of our house. Nope, wasn’t the plan. Not at all.
Here are 3 pics from that scary morning…
And here are pictures from a year later to the day on Cash’s actual 1st Birthday.
We went to the fire station that sent the truck to our home on December 11, 2012. The station is less than a mile from our house and I called them earlier in the day to let them know we would be coming. When I called Fireman Daniels (the one pictured holding Cash in the 2nd picture above) answered the phone! I told him we would like to visit and bring them some goodies and he said they would love to see us. He said he definitely remembered us! We were bummed when we got to the station because we found out that Fireman Daniels was called away to another station, but we still got to visit with the other firemen who were on call. We talked about our story for a while. Next, they offered a tour of the station for our kids- how cool! Our kids were SO quiet and shy.
We are so thankful for everyone who came that morning- including the Paramedics. It is more difficult to get back in touch with Paramedics! Thank you Jesus for giving these people a calling to help others in a time of need. They are definitely our heroes.
