Happy Birthday April!

Love comes in small packages…On April 18, it came in a package weighing just over 8 lbs.

How blessed we were to finally be able to hold you!  (I used the picture of you with your two “packages of love”.

I kept thinking there MUST be something wrong…when you slept through the nights from the very beginning…but nothing was wrong…everything was right.

To be your mommy has been the biggest privilege imagined.  I cannot think of one single accomplishment that would or could top this!

Even when I felt a complete and utter failure–a smile from your face (just like Jake’s), would remind me that God was STILL on His throne and HE was ready and able to help me do THIS mothering thing RIGHT.  I gave it my best shot.

Thank you darling daughter for not reminding me of the many times I failed…but you always seem to remember the “good stuff”……Why can’t I remember like you?

You are a beautfiul young woman–who walks steadfastly in God’s grace–and who is blazing a trail for others to follow.  We are so proud of you!

Happy Birthday!

Love,
Mom
