23 Years Ago . . .

Do you remember where you were 23 years ago? I know exactly where I was and exactly what I was doing. Not that I'm bragging about my excellent memory, it's just that it was the day my first child was born. I would imagine that every mother remembers that experience (mostly the good parts of it), and I'm no exception.
Andrew Thomas Heiss was born September 19, 1984, a day late and a dollar short, to coin a phrase. We had been married just over two years, and Reid was a senior at BYU. I had graduated in 1983 and was working full time up until just before Andrew was born.

Now he's 23 years old and has a little family of his own. You can see pictures of my first grandchild, Rachel, on their blog:

I don't know how, but my life has gone by progressively faster as the years go on. It's kind of nice, though, to see my children grow up and live good lives. Thank you, Andrew, for the past 23 years of joy!

You know, when Rachel's hair is wet and plastered to her head, I think she looks so much more like Andrew...I'll have to show you one of those pictures.
