Happy Birthday Daughter

(Birthday at age 3)

Becoming a mother. How I dreamed of that when I was a little girl. How I wished for it after I was married. And then almost four years after our wedding, it happened! Thirty-two years ago today....this morning at 5:10 a.m. to be exact....I became a mother for the first time! A Mama to the sweetest little baby girl that ever was! It was almost too much to realize! This little bundle of joy with the still purplish hands and feet was a real little person who was now in the care of me and my husband. We would have to meet each and every one of her needs for the next several months and years to come. She has been a joy to us.

"The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice." Proverbs 23: 24-25

Something in me just lights up when she walks in the room even still after all these years. She's a grown woman now....has been for quite some time....but she will always be my little girl.

Happy Birthday Daughter! I love you!

Not only do you have the best daughter, but she has the best Mom as well.

Blessings as you reflect on memories as you also continue to build memories.
