Well, almost. (It will be official at 11:11 AM.)
I am now mother to a SEVEN-YEAR OLD. And yes, I am screaming that! ;)
|Mary Catherine & Meadow...my sister's Golden Retriever. (July 2011)|
I'll save the "dripping with saccharine" sweet posts for my daughter.
Some things are just better left publicly unsaid.
Just know this...this angelic face has brought my husband and I more joy than we ever thought possible! What started out as a quest to overcome infertility and "have a baby" has turned into, "Why did God choose us to parent this beautiful child...we are so undeserving!"
Her delight with life...ability to notice and celebrate the small things...positive spirit...love for Christ...all of these things have helped me to be a better mother. Daily.
She is both an answer to prayer...and an answer to unasked prayers.
God knows both the desire of out hearts...and what our hearts need, even if unbeknown to us.
We've got big plans today with this girl of ours...including a trip to the Kansas City Zoo...Chuck E. Cheese (gag!) ;)...and ear piercing (her request...daddy's conspiracy!).
Wishing you a blessed Thursday,
