Heart to Heart Sunday
Good morning friends! As yesterday was a whirlwind of birthday fun, I was unable to sit down. At a computer to blog? Fahgetaboutit! The party was a great success celebrating my beautiful girls. Here they are smiling for Mom, AGAIN! :)
When my hubby and I married, children were not in the equation for a good 5 years or more. We made it 5 months before I found out a precious baby was on the way. To say we were stunned is an understatement. I can vividly remember the days of pregnancy, the HUGE belly and the difficult delivery. But I can also remember the precious bundle they placed in my arms that beautiful morning in August 11 years ago. Yes, I said 11!!
Three years later, Hubby and I welcomed another little girl into our family. I can remember the moment Hubby walked into the room with Em in his arms. Her Daddy brought her over to introduce her to the new addition and asked if she would like to give the baby a kiss to which she clearly replied, "No, she is all yucky." She asked for us to make sure the baby was nice and clean before giving any kisses! But from the moment the baby was placed in my Em's arms, NatNat gained a second mother. Now 8 years later, my NatNat is a funny and playful young lady.
The two girls in the picture above hold such a precious place in my heart. It reminds me of the Scripture from Psalm 127:3 "Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward." It took work bringing them into this world, and it takes work to do my best in raising them to be Godly girls, but they reward me everyday with their love, character, and devotion to God as well as their family. My heart is full on this Heart to Heart Sunday; so while I wipe away my tears of blessings and joy, I want to say, "Happy Birthday, Em and NatNat! Mommy could not be any more proud of both of you!"
Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
