I remember it like it was yesterday—two pink lines.
Terrified is the only word I can use to describe that moment, but then I heard your heartbeat.
I saw this little blob on the ultrasound and I was in love.
I remember being so excited to find out if you would be a little boy or girl.
Sitting in that dark room with your daddy seeing you hiccup and hide from us; I knew you were to be something extraordinary.
Once everyone piled into the room you finally let us know you were going to be the star of the show.
My perfect baby girl.
How those months pregnant seemed to drag on, and then just like that I held you in my arms.
I swear I felt like a bad mom, because I didn’t even cry when you were born! Don’t worry I cry ALL the time now, I’ve totally made up for that moment.
Now, you are this little girl.
Full of imagination, wonder, and sass.
Time never seemed to move fast until you came along.
I love you more than life.
I would give anything to keep you from pain and harm. You make my worst days better.
I never knew I could love so much.
I feel you slipping away from me and you're only three.
You are so strong and independent.
You are everything I love about myself and everything I wish I could be.
It baffles me how I am always continuously amazed by you.
Never allow anyone to steal the stars from your eyes.
Keep that silly laugh and beautiful smile no matter how broken the world around you may be.
Trust in the Lord always.
Love Jesus more each day.
Always remember you are loved.
Someone to be valued and cherished.
Love with all your heart and all your might.
Give every part of yourself over to the Lord.
He will be your strength and your helper.
He has a plan for your good and his glory.
Allow yourself to be used by him and pray without ceasing.
Never become distracted or forget all that you are and all that HE has created you to be.
Keep God first in all things, and you will not be lead astray.
Chase every hope and dream that you have.
Don't let anyone or anything stand in the way of who you are destined to become.
I love you sweet baby and I am so blessed to be the one you call momma.
"I'll never let you go Jack"
