Lately

Lately I have been admiring the beauty that is my little girl. It radiates from within and shines all over her face. Her love for others is already so prominent in her littleness and her compassion is astounding!

null

She has a huge heart for animals and babies...just like her mama! I even think she may have been praying for a new baby brother or sister longer than I have! And now those prayers have changed into, "please, Jesus, can I have a baby sister?" And oh how I pray that for her, for I am afraid her little heart may be crushed if she hears she is getting another brother! She does make one great big sister, however, and Caleb has said it many times how much he just loves Emma! And he too prays for a little sister, I believe because the one he already has is so wonderful!

null

I am learning through her that I need to embrace my children for who they are and not try and make them into what I want them to become! God has a plan laid out for their lives and my job is to nourish, protect, teach, and show love...lots and lots of love!

null

I will spend these little days playing and pretending and encouraging the love that radiates from her. I will allow her to love all animals and encourage her talks of wanting to grow up to be a Veterinarian. And I am anxiously awaiting the day when this new little one arrives and to see her mama instincts kick in and watch the love she already has for her new little sister {or brother} just light up the room!

Self taken potrait!

I am truly blessed! I cannot say it enough!
