The Big Day!!!
It's here - the BIG DAY!!! Our little one is 3!!! I can not believe it - when I look at her, I think we just brought her home yesterday but I love her so much it feels as if she's been here forever!! We have been richly blessed - she is such a ray of sunlight to all of us. Chloe's birthday does make me reflect a bit though - I think of a birth mom across the world who is also thinking of a little girl born three years ago today - one that she does not have the opportunity to watch grow and one that she probably wonders about often. I wish I could tell her that our little girl is growing like a weed, loves to sing and dance, and is THE BEST hugger I know. I wish I could tell her that I am more in love with this child than I was when we were given her in Hunan, China - and I didn't believe that was possible. I wish I could tell her how grateful I am that she carried this baby and didn't chose to abort her. I wish I could reassure her and let her know that Chloe is loved beyond her imagination. I wish I could give her a hug and tell her that I am grateful for a big God that saw fit to let us have this little one ~ so that we can love on her and experience life through a little girl's eyes. Happy Birthday my little one - we love you!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
