Two Years




The night before you were born I asked my mom the secret to loving your second child as much as your first. I couldn't imagine how much love a mother could hold in her heart. She assured me I would never question my ability to love once I held you in my arms.

But, she was wrong.

Because I didn't even have to wait until I held you to know my heart had a capacity for love that was bigger than I could possibly have imagined. I remember the moment you were born and your lungs cried out with your first breath. I remember being flooded with an overwhelming sense of love in that moment. I remember knowing I would never be the same.

You, my amazing girl, taught me about the breadth of a mother's love. You showed me that my heart was capable of more love than I could have ever known. You revealed a part of God's heart I had never before experienced.

You changed my life the moment you entered this world. You bring immeasurable joy. You have shown me all that is good in me and all that is good in this world.

I love you, precious baby. I am thankful every day for you...
