Mother's day 2009: Missing Mia and wishing so much that I was holding my 4 month old baby girl today. Really happy about hanging with Jada and super grateful to be a mommy!
I spent some time out at Mia's grave today with lots of tears and lots of prayer. I love her and truly hate that she is not with us now. It was a good time of crying out to God for our babies to come and asking that He gives and does not take them away. I asked Him that in 60+ years that the rest of our kids would be burying us and not the other way around ever again.
I was really glad to think about this new baby Lee's purposes and call for his/her life. We wouldn't have been able to get pregnant with this baby if we had Mia...and I am convinced that God has really sovereign reasons for the timing that He does all things... so it will be really fun to see God's call and purposes for this sweet baby Lee as he/she grows and lives.
So...Yay for babies and for Jesus' love for all of them and for us...I am uniquely grateful today.
Also, Jada is SO fun. This week she woke up asking for her butterfly wings so she could start dancing around the house. She is quite the little dancer and of course she sings while dancing...so I love that :). Also, she has a new favorite hair style...her Princess Leah Pigtails. She is quite the little girl and I love her!!!
