A Life-Changing Valentine

My life was forever changed on February 14, 1998. I received the most incredible gift of love that day- I became a mother.

Oh, how I remember those first few weeks at home with a newborn! I had read every "What To Expect" book out there, but I still had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Bookworm and I began our journey down the mother/daughter road together. On days when I questioned my skills as a mother, one smile from that precious face would clear all doubts away.

I've made many mistakes on our journey, but Bookworm and I have continued the growing process together. She has turned into a young lady right before my eyes!

Sometimes I wish that I could turn back the hands of time and be able to do those early days over again. I'd like to think that I would make fewer mistakes. But I can't go back. Instead, I'll embrace each new day and strive to be the mother that God would have me to be.

To my Birthday Girl,
I pray that in the coming year you will grow closer to Jesus and seek to please Him in all that you say and do. I'm so very thankful that God chose you to be my firstborn! Daddy and I feel so blessed to have you as our daughter. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Happy 9th birthday, Sweetie! I love you bunches!

What a beautiful tribute to your little girl. I pray Bookworm has a wonderful day filled with God's blessings and that her mommy and daddy enjoy each minute they get with their precious little sweetie.

Oh, Mrs. C, how special for you! I don't think we'll be having a little Valentine today (though I am having contractions as I type, so he might just be late, lol), but I'm sure he'll come soon (at least, I'm hoping so!!!). Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Birthday to Bookworm! :~)

Hi, Kim! It's good to *see* you here.:)

Just think--you and I were experiencing great pain and great joy at the exact same time! :)
