It is my baby girl's birthday this week. She is 2 years old. In her short little life she has endured grief and hardships as I have never known. The Lord granted me the privilege of this wee one to love and hold. It is my ardent hope she will have a happy life and know Him. As I watched her blithely running in the park today, legs flying high as she trotted about giggling with glee, my heart bubbled over with joy. I thought to myself....If this little one brings such gaiety to my world just think how God must feel when He watches us at play! How He love His children! I pray the Lord gives Willow all she needs in life to be committed to Him. The few months I have had her in my life she has blessed me beyond measure.... my cup runneth over .... as does my laundry. Pick a winner sweetheart.
Kids Mamas say the strangest things
Being Willow's mama I realized is a bit different than my other girls. She is quite the explorer and continuously discovering her world. I find myself saying the strangest things.... (Attention: No, animals have been harmed in this home or during the writing of this blog) ;)
