At 2:30 a.m. twenty-three years ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. It was a Sunday morning. The nurse laid her in my arms, the child I had known for the past nine months as she had grown within me. What a precious gift from God.
Today, that same beautiful daughter is still a precious gift from God. She has grown into a beautiful woman with a heart as big as an ocean. I am in awe of the treasures within her. She has a keen ability to see the good in others and longs to see those treasures in them unlocked. She has a deep love for God. She is indeed a joy to know.
Happy birthday, Jessica Amanda. May your day be truly blessed.
