I have a whole post in the wings to talk about my sweetheart. To talk about the last year of her life. To share with you all that she has accomplished, and all that she has already blossomed into. To share what she still struggles with and to delight in what she has overcome.
But I wanted to take at least a moment to celebrate the simple fact that a year has passed with my beauty in my arms. And to say how much she has changed and grown and developed so wonderfully that it leaves us in awe of her every day.
It was a year on the 18th. But I’m not holding myself too tightly to precise dates for the blogging. It’s been 12 months since we started learning to be mother and daughter. And I’ve got two things that stand out the most…
She was just as much my daughter then, as she is today –
trials, heartache, pain, and resounding Joy
My love for her grows deeper by the hour
And, she’s just as stunningly beautiful to me now, as she was then
and will be tomorrow and for all of her days
The rest to come…
