This assignment was SO easy to create! My beautiful and amazing daughter Abby has spent the last 9 days in Virginia getting spoiled by her Nana and Poppy and playing with her cousin Dorothy Anne. I know the trip has been good for all parties involved. My parents get to spend some one-on-one time with Abby and since they live 5 hours away they only get to see her every 2-3 months. Abby also gets the chance to become a little more independent and has time to bond with her cousin (who is 10 months younger than her). I grew up close to a lot of my cousins so I would love for Abby to have that same opportunity. It has been good for my husband and I as well as we have had some downtime just the two of us and we were able to have conversations that didn’t include diapers or SpongeBob.
Thankfully today is the day she comes home! I honestly may kiss her cheeks completely off! I miss her smile and the sound of her laugh. I even miss hearing “Mama, what are you doing?” 4872 times a day and getting kicked in the wee hours of the morning when she has made her way into our bed. I miss this face so much:
It is through this beautiful miracle that I have learned so much about God’s love. She has taught me what unconditional love is. Through her God has taken something ugly and broken and made it beautiful and abundant. Words cannot describe just how thankful I am for being allowed the chance to parent such an amazing little girl!
What is making you smile today?
