Why or why did I ever start blogging? I was a pile of tears looking back through pictures of Damaris. Oh, how thankful I am that I was home everyday with her. She woke up sick today on her 2nd birthday. She was throwing up all day. It was so sad. Pictures have an amazing way of moving the heart. As I was searching through my thousands of photos, I couldn't help but say over and over how grateful I was for our time. Time is so very precious. What if I would have missed the exquisite beauty of watching this child grow each day? How much daily happiness she gives our whole family! What if I would have missed that? From a heart bursting with gratitude, I am thankful Lord you opened my eyes to the wonder of each child you decided to give to John and I.
My mother has warned me how much these pictures are going to hurt in the future. I already feel it. I say it again, TIME IS PRECIOUS.
The day we fell in love.
My favorite picture of all time.
And...just like that our little girl is 2!!!!!!!!!!
