December 2, 2005 is the day that I became a mother. My girl was born at 4:47am. A healthy 6lb 11oz 19″ bundle of joy. Since her birth she has done a fine job of keeping me on my toes. She is just like me from the way she looks to the way she talks (and maybe even her attitude?!). There is no doubt about it, she is a precious gift from The Lord to our family and each day I thank Him for blessing us with her.
To celebrate we had a horse themed party the day before her birthday. I know you are shocked! And then on her birthday she, her brother, and I went to the local party supply store and they got to create their own stuffed animals. It has been hailed the “best birthday ever!!” and she is 8 so she has had plenty to judge them by!
So, here is to a new year of motherhood. A new point in life. A new direction and season. I am praying that it is richly blessed and full of surprise and beauty. I know that in the midst we will hit stumbling blocks; but I pray those blocks will help us grow in our walk with The Lord.
