How did I get to be so lucky? Being your mama is the BEST thing I have ever done with my life. I would sacrifice it all a million times over to be with you every day.
These past few months have been amazing as your language has exploded and your personality continues to form. You bring so many giggles and you love to make others smile. I am blown away by your kindness and deep empathy for others. I am brought to tears when I hear you singing Jesus music and requesting that we play Tobymac or when I hear your little voice praying at the dinner table (even if it’s to thank God for ketchup and curtains 😂). You feel emotions big, deep, and wide and it reminds my every day of the love Christ has for us.
You challenge and stretch me in ways I can only think of as refining and molding me into the woman God designed me to be. It is through being your mama that I have found my voice, my strength and a self-love I have only dreamt for. You bring out my silly and make me free.
I prayed and longed to be a mama and I had no idea what I was in for. I have never been more exhausted, but I have also never been so full of joy, love, and peace. So here’s to you my sweet E, thank you for making me mama. I love you.
