This was a photo I snapped of Grey before Tisha arrived Thursday:
Jenny Broughton gave a wonderful message about being the daughters of the King of Kings, defining the crowns we will receive in heaven, and being adopted into the Lord's family. I was thoroughly moved by her testimony and message. It was a very refreshing, needed weekend!
We decided Grey could wear the crowns we received at the conference:
Our little princess Grey Danelle, daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords...and daughter of Momma's Prince Charming. :)
Not many people in this world get a second chance at having a Mom. Growing up I definitely had no idea what a real parent was like. I am forever grateful for Tisha teaching me what parental love looks like in the Word. I could not have chosen a better mom if that was a choice I had.
More important than posting Grey's "43 Week Notes", she is OFFICIALLY WALKING!! For a week she has been getting braver with a few steps here and there, but today it looks REAL. One day when I fill out her baby book I'll be glad I was late posting her 43 week blog, so that I could write Sunday, January 20th, as the day she learned to walk!! 2 days before turning 10 months old!
My baby is growing up. My heart is loving it, and yet it's so bittersweet. I just simply cannot believe the graciousness of my Savior. How do I get to live this life each day? Simply blessed.
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. Psalm 89:15
