Happy Birthday, My Sweet Girl

One year ago right to this minute (12:44 p.m.), my child was born. That is when I became a mother. That is when I fell in love like I never have before.

I never thought I wanted to be a mother. I didn't think babies were anything great. I didn't think I could hand over my life to someone else.

Then one day as I lay on an operating table, I heard the cry of my daughter. From that moment on, there has never been anything more difficult and more easy than handing my life over to her.

Thank you, God, for knowing the plan all along, and sending me Claire.

I love you, my little fuzzy...



And Always

this right here..

describes my feelings exactly.
Gosh, no matter how many times people tell you the powerful emotion mother hood causes.
Nothing can prepare you.

Hope your little girl has a great birthday!
