11 years ago today, I became a Mommy.
My heart is so full as I write this.
It happens every year.
I guess it is because she is my first, my little girl.
Her milestones are precious to me, yet they break my heart.
I see myself in just a few short years chasing after her
as she breezes through our home and off again with her friends.
Or as she rushes past me to answer the phone call of her latest beau.
With each passing birthday I realize my time with her is shorter and shorter.
While I cannot wait for her to experience all that this life has in store for her,
my prayer is that part of her will always want to be my little princess.
As I sit here in front of our roaring fire, staring at that gorgeous creature asleep in her sweatpants, I praise God that he chose me to be her mother.
My tears are not tears of sadness, well not completely.
They are of an unselfish love for another, I never knew was possible before her.
We will celebrate today by hosting 6 tween girls to spend the night.
Yes, I have lost my ever loving mind.
It is to be a spa party.
Facials, mani/pedis, and karaoke.
Pizza, cake and ice cream, and tons of girl talk!
So as 7:44 PM precisely ticks by
it will be 11 years to the moment that precious creature took her first breath. (emergency c-section 2 months early)
As I recall the fear I was going through at THIS very moment,
I am driven to my knees again praising God for his blessings.
The 34 hours prior to her arrival
were some of the most terrifying I have ever been through.
Yet, I wouldn't trade any of those
122 400 seconds for what we have with her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCESS
we love you and
we are so very proud of you.
Thanks for dropping by Y'all!
