She’s the girl that sparks sweet joy in our hearts.
She’s the girl that teaches us more about love.
She’s the girl that sings glorious songs every day.
She’s the girl that shows us how to be brave.
And I’m in awe of the ways that her beauty and her strength, her uniqueness and her creativity, her kindness and each lovely offering continually display the gracious, beautiful love of God.
Oh, Annabella Love –
I’ll take the singing in the bathroom from the top of your lungs,
The smiles and hugs as you show me your love,
The countless drawings scattered all over the house,
The snuggles as you sound out each and every new word,
The cartwheels tumbled across the living room floor,
And the heart-stopping that comes from watching you fly.
You captured my heart seven years ago, and you just keep doing it over and over. I am so honored to be your mama. Oh how I love you!
Keep being brave and kind, precious girl. Keep looking to Jesus. Keep singing and praying and dancing and laughing.
Happy 7th Birthday, Annabella Love!
You have my heart!
