7 years ago today; this precious girl made me a momma.
i spent some time reflecting on the craziness of 7 years of motherhood has brought me this morning. but mostly i thought about who this little girl is growing up to be; because she doesn't seem so little anymore. i'm starting a new tradition today. to pray for each of my babies, very specifically on their birthdays. it seemed appropriate to jump into that new tradition with her birthday; after all she got this journey in motherhood started.
i spend alot of time talking about how difficult parenting her can be and not enough time highlighting her many amazing features. she's always brave. she always independent. she blazes her own trail, paying no attention to what anyone else around her thinks. she never thinks"no" really means no. so, she finds a new way to accomplish her goal. that tenacity will take her far. she is funny. she is smart. she is always helping her siblings, and really at times "mothers" them right thru something. she loves two things with a passion that i've never seen an adult have horses & people. (in that order)
you'll go far little one, and i'm so proud to be your momma. #cowgirlprincess#kids#birthday#growingup#cowgirls#stubborn#independentwoman#raisingkids#raisingchristleadkids#praisinggirlswell#raisinggirls#motherhood#parenthood#rawandreal
