And she turns one...
A year ago today my husband and I spent our last hours as a family of two.
She was soon to arrive.
And we were all anticipation and hope.
CLICK HERE to read more about our first baby dreams.
And now, how quickly a year has gone.
Imagining life without her is impossible
and what she has birthed in us
is deeper than any dream, any love
we thought we knew.
Mostly, all I have to say,
is that I waited all my life to be a mama...
not realizing that really what I was waiting for
was to be her mama.
He tells us that He can do more than we ask or imagine.
I've doubted that word,
I've questioned His promises,
Wondered where He was and why why why?
I may ask those questions and doubt those doubts again in my life.
Until I see her face
that in those eyes, that tiny pert nose, that small mouth
is mirrored the very image of Him
who does do more than we ask or imagine.
Happy first birthday, Sophie Girl.
You are our joy.
