Things They Never Told Me…

on August 16, 2012

    Wow. My first blog…ever! This is pretty exciting to me, as you can tell. I have so many thoughts on what I could or should write about, but I’ll keep it to what ‘s been on my mind all day…here it goes!

 Eight years ago today, God blessed me with a daughter…and I became a Mother for the very first time at 22 years old.  As soon as I saw her, my life was changed forever. She was beautiful. They never told me how beautiful she would be.  I remember when she would wake up in the middle of the night, and I would just rock her…and watch her sleep.  I would sit there in awe, imagining what it would be like when she was older. They never told me how fast those times really do fly by.

Now looking back I see Emaleigh, 2 years old, meeting her brand new baby brother, “Beebee Yijah”, for the first time. Then, when she was 3 years old, dancing and singing in every princess costume imaginable. My big 4 year old starting preschool and really letting her Daddy’s personality shine through…making friends with everyone.  Wow, she’s 5 and starting Kindergarten…trying to run home during recess because she missed her Mommy. My first grader is now 6 and has calluses on her hand like she’s been doing the monkey bars all of her life. So excited at 7 to be a big sister for the second time, and being a little “mini mommy” helping at every opportunity she gets. And now 8…She has blossomed into the most beautiful, smart, kind, energetic and sassy little girl that I have ever come to love.

Tonight, I sit here feeling so blessed to be a mother of 3. They never told me just how blessed I could feel.

Happy Birthday Emaleigh.
