Thanksgiving journey day 3
Need I say more? Their eyes, their smiles, their hearts, their love, their antics, their optimism, their dependence, their sincerity, their passion, their abandon, their spirit, their imagination, their character, their kisses, their cuddles, their highs, their lows, their whispers, their yelps, their songs, their devotion, their fascinations, their dirty hands, their bare feet, their curiosity, they are what I give thanks for today and every day-- my precious, precocious, pretty, predictable, pretenders.
My oldest, my brilliant star, my little lady, my baby who loves with every inch of her heart is about to turn 5 in 10 days—my elegant, fruitful, blushing beauty as her name means. Her name fits her personality as if God named her. She has an eye for detail, a heart for organization, acts like a lady (most of the time), is diligent, passionate and loves Jesus with all her heart. She is my sweet “baby girl”, my sunshine on a rainy day.
My youngest, my sweet little loveable baby, my tiny girl full of love and life bigger than herself, is going to turn 3 next month. My Christmas princess as her name means was my gift at Christmas in 2004. She is a princess at the same time she is a puddle jumper, a misfit, a frolic… she would love to put on a pretty dress and then go sit in the nearest mud puddle. She has been known (like every Sunday morning) to find an earthworm (or any bug she might come across) and want to take it to church. That’s my “Turkey”, my ham, my gem.
My quiver is full. My children are my blessing from God. I am so thankful for my angels.
