This morning, my daughter Audrey came walking out of our bedroom in her little, pink pajamas with a big, bright, pink bow on her head that she must of found in there left over from her 1st birthday this past March! She had, as she almost always does, the most beautiful, shining, big smile on her face... as if to say, "Look at me, Mama... I am your Little Gift sent from Heaven above!" I couldn't help but praise God for the sheer joy, wonderment and sweetness of her! I love this verse above, found in Sacred Scripture in Psalm 127:3 and felt that this special moment spoke the truth of it to me... so very clearly, more than ever before! I will cherish that moment for all time!
Children truly are a precious gift of the Lord... and even though, I consider my husband to also be a gift, sent to me by God into my life... children, even more so I find, are His gift to us as parents, and an even more precious gift to bless our marriage and family in the most amazing ways.
There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God deeply, for blessing me as graciously and abundantly as He has with my daughter, Audrey... nor is there I day that goes by that I don't forget to let her know in numerous and different kinds of ways how very precious she is to me and our family, how beloved she is by us all and most of all by God and how very thankful I am to be her mother and she my beautiful child.
With Mother's Day coming up tomorrow, I am overjoyed and delighted to be celebrating my 2nd Mother's Day with my daughter and my family. The bond between mother and child is so incredibly strong; it's eternal and ever growing... and it continues to grow stronger and more beautiful each day with the help of God's Grace. I look forward to tomorrow and each day celebrating, honoring and cherishing all the countless blessings and joys and gifts of motherhood and my new journey that God and my daughter have brought me to!
Wishing a very Happy and Blessed Mother's Day to all mothers... you are blessed and beautiful and full of God's Grace. May we continue our journey as mothers with God at our side and may it be filled with God's Grace our whole lives through!
