She brings me joy, pride, worry, heartache, happiness, love, tears, laughter, weariness, and amazement.  And that’s just to name a few of the things I feel as a mother.  I love her with all of my heart and pray every day for her to grow up to be a strong, tender, compassionate woman of God.  It’s overwhelming at times to think of the responsibility I have as a parent of this little person.  I can only surrender my will to His, and pray that He guides me and guards us both in our journey through this world.
