My baby is turning one tomorrow…

abi-35

Wow.  Even writing that sentence seems unbelievable.  It seems strange, but I have enjoyed this day of just anticipating tomorrow so much.  It has been a sweet day of remembering moments that have existed this past year and being thankful.  All throughout the day (haha, and yesterday!) I have thought about the process of laboring to bring Abi into the world.  Trust me, it was labor!  But what an experience.  It was defining.  It didn’t happen the way that we had envisioned; but we got Abi at the end of it – amazing.  And tomorrow she is turning one.  I have such vivid memories of  the moment I first held her, and now she can walk.  Tears are flowing as I write this.  She’s one.  One year of remarkable life change.  One year of rejoicing in the Lord’s grace in giving Abi to us to raise and love.  One year of being stretched and being sanctified through the process.  One year of getting to know this little life who is forever bonded to me.  My daughter.  What a celebration of life.
