Tonight I read a beautiful reminder of how precious our babies truly are! Jessica (Alex' Mom) wrote such a heartfelt post about when he was born she prayed for a cure but that today if one was found would she trade who Alex was for a cure, NO WAY!
It hit home with me as Annabel was full of her smiles, love, out loud laughter and just her awesome goodness. Yes, I love each and everyone of my children for who they are. I thought my life was as blessed as it could be after each one of them and truly thought he was done with blessing me as far as children go. There is just something about these special ones! They can melt you in a moment with no words just how they speak in their silence, smiling through their eyes and with their silky touch. Today at therapy, Annabel shirt said "100% sweet" and her therapist Meg commented that she was probably the only child she knew that could wear this and it be absolutely TRUE! Of course, I beamed because she is just so sweet and she was working so hard at each thing Meg had her doing. At other times Meg had said that Annabel is a good end to her day because of how much love Annabel gives to her and just how joyful she is. This is true, at work, play, sickness or whatever, this baby girl is God's absolute perfection. Thank you, Jessica for reminding us today how LUCKY and BLESSED we are to be their mothers!
