Looking Back: One Year Ago Today


One year ago today, November 21st...

Our lives changed forever.

One year ago today...

I saw that word for the second time in four months.

One year ago today...

I cried happy, but cautious, tears.

One year ago today...

Eight months seemed like such a long time to wait to hold our baby in our arms.

One year ago today...

We secretly hoped for a little girl.

One year ago today...

We found out I was pregnant.

One year ago today...

We thanked the Lord for blessing us.


One year ago today...

I knew I woud love being a mom, but there was no way I could feel what I feel now.

*sigh*


My love for her is so astronomical. I can't even put it into words. I cherish every second I have with her. I thank our Heavenly Father so much for blessing us with such a girl. :-) Every day I look at her, I want to cry (and sometimes I do) because of the love I have for her.

One year ago today...

Our prayers were answered. :-)

Your words are so sweet, and I know exactly what you are saying. My girls are 20 and 21 years old now, and sometimes I still cry when I look at them, because I think they are such amazing young women. I give all the glory to God for these blessings in our lives. You just don't know the capacity of your heart until you love someone as much as you love a child, and, amazingly, the capacity keeps growing as your family grows. Your daughter is beautiful, and so is your love for her.
