Can this be true? Is my "little girl" really 12 years old? Where have the past 12 years gone? As I reflect on how much she has grown, I am also struck by how much I have grown, too. Not to mention how much our family has grown, adding Dad, a 9 year old brother and a 4 month old sister.
This 5'1 tall young lady in the room next to mine was once the 7lb 14oz 22in baby I brought home from the hospital. As she transformed into the smiley/drooling 6 month old pictured on the right - I should have realized how fast time was going then. I thank God for showering me/us with grace as a single mother back then. There were so many things he was working in our lives then - that I am beginning to see now. I'm thankful that He continues to show us grace and cover us in His love.
Thank you Lord for my daughter.
