31 Days of Quotes, Day 15...


"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."

~ Dr. Seuss  {Happy Birthday to You!}


My little spitfire lady turned SEVEN today.  The first sound I heard this morning was Matt letting me listen to a voice recording of her from almost 4 years ago.  I cried hearing her tiny voice.

We have come a long way with both of us learning how to love.   We are just alike in so many ways…..and I knew that could either be a good thing or a bad thing.  But, I was determined to let Love win with us.  We are growing up together and I love seeing her bloom more and more each day.  I adore her hugs {although sometimes I have to brace myself}, but it reminds me of her passionate soul.

A strong willed child she is, most definitely…..and that is a good thing…although I wasn't always sure of that since it made parenting a bit more difficult.  Yet, there is no other Anna Jaymes, and I will take her just the way God has made her….strong will, passion and all.  It thrills me to think of the plans He has for her and how He is molding and shaping her day by day.

My heart breaks at the days I have taken for granted with her over the last seven years, but I am grateful and hopeful for the many more to come….and I hope to cherish every moment.

There is no other You more youer than you, Anna Jaymes…..and I love YOU.
