Ever have those days that you know you'll remember all the parts of-not just what happened-but the smells, the sights, the emotions??
Today was one of those days.
After years of prayers Lana welcomed baby Lydia to their family today-
she is a beautiful blessing.
Mackaylan became a big sister-
I think everyone involved could say that their
"heart(s) grew three sizes that day".
Lana was tired-but glowing
her eyes were weak-but full of the spark that new life and love create
Mickey was exhausted-nervous and proud-
and Mackaylan of course-all grins when she left
even cousin Eli, couldn't get enough snuggling with the perfect birthday girl
with her sweet chunky legs, perfectly round head, rosy cheeks, and precious feet-
was the picture of love-of answered prayers, and God's most precious gift of life.
I came home...
with a full heart,
a renewed sense of God's love, His creation & His timing,
and a reminder of how special each of God's precious gifts are...
Happy Birth-day Lydia!
