Oh sweet girl, for your mama to not be much of a crier, I definitely have a lump growing in my throat just thinking about you and how much you have blessed me and your daddy this year. It has been an eventful march around the calendar, but we would not take any of it away because we have received the best gift: you...and the gift of not taking one moment with you for granted. I cherish every second spent with you and thank God for many more.
His strength at work in you has been so evident these months...just look at how far you have come in exactly one year!...
Jesus has healed you, Anniston, and your daddy and I do not want you to ever forget what He has done for you. You are our miracle baby, that is for sure!
You just have the sweetest little heart. You always want to touch everyone with your soft, tickly fingers, and you look into our eyes with such love...you smile with your eyes, but it goes much deeper than that. It's as though you want to somehow convey that you are giving us all of your love...all of your heart. I wake up every morning excited to see your happy face and to get a wonderful, messy kiss on my cheek.
Your daddy and I thank God every day for you and for the JOY that you have brought into our home! We love you OH SO MUCH and wish you the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY!!!!
The verse still rings true: "The Lord WILL perfect what concerns us. Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever!" Psalm 138:8
