I have one of those?! No. Impossible. How has two years already passed since I became a mom?
Oh wait, see that little thing, who looks just like me, throwing a tantrum like clockwork at 5:00pm?
Yes, she must be two :)
The truth is, I don't feel like time has flown. It doesn't feel like just yesterday that I became a mom. It's already been such a long and rich journey. Not one that could be had in a short amount of time. Most days it's hard to remember life before being a mom, life before Brad and I having kids, life before us being a family.
I've gone through so much because of this little life (and the other little life in our home too!) in my care.
She has sharpened me. She has strengthened me. She has exposed my sin in ways nothing else could have. She has given me unique joy that nothing else has. She has drawn me closer to God, because I sense my need for Him greater than ever before.
As a mom I've wept more, laughed more, trusted more, doubted more, worried more, hoped more.
Than any other time in my life.
And it's only been two years.
Lily, thank you.
I love being your mom.
happy birthday sweet girl.
