This birthday is going down in the books as the one that lasted 4 days. But why not? Her life is worth celebrating. I don’t think I realized what a gift we have in that some of our dearest friends are the parents of Anna’s friends. I’ve said to the Lord many times that I hope we are all still parenting alongside each other when they are graduating from high school together. How awesome.
“How marvelous it is, O Lord, that you contemplated each of us before we were made! How marvelous that you considered and created us, decreeing the very time and place that each of us should enter the world, to live out our own part of your grand story.” Every Moment Holy
What a sweet year it has been, loving and learning her, while leaning SO MUCH into the Holy Spirit as she grows and changes and develops her own will. Parenting is certainly a wild adventure, but it’s a serious delight.
AJ, you are quite loved.
Here’s to year 2.
