My little heart can't handle
three birthdays within a week
ending with the anniversary of
becoming a mom.
Sixteen years ago today you
burst into my life and started something that
has helped me see God
and feel His grace.
Only God could orchestrate the beauty that is this life.
Nothing extravagant but
The quiet concentration of siblings making gifts.
The determination of making your own birthday cake.
The working-together of cleaning up after dinner.
The peace of being right where God would have us, together.
