When I discovered I had a baby girl growing in me, my heart nearly burst with joy. Not because I was crossing fingers and hoping for a girl. Not because I was disappointed with two little boys before you. But simply because my heart was so full of love for the chance to be a mom to your brothers that the thought of being a mom to a little girl as well was almost more than I could imagine.
I was so thankful.
I'm thankful for that.
Annalyse, I'm thankful that you love your Daddy. A constant prayer of mine is that you're respect him always. He is your biggest cheerleader and greatest advocate. He's promised to be faithful to you and our family for ever and ever. Not many little girls have that gift to cherish.
And that's something to be thankful for. Very thankful for.
Right now you enjoy playing with baby dolls, and I really love that. You're at a wonderful place in life where you'll be a great help for me as we welcome our newest little boy to the family soon.
I'm thankful for these interests you have.
Thank you for reminding me to find pleasure in the mundane.
You are precious in my life because a gracious God gifted you to me and I'm forever thankful to him for you.
Psalm 126:3 "The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."
