More than I could imagine


I tell Kyle all the time that being a mom is so much better than I could have even imagined.

I always thought I would enjoy being a mom. It's something I always looked forward to and wanted for my life. I can honestly say it has exceeded all of my expectations and dreams. Next to being a wife, that sweet girl sleeping in the other room brings me more joy than anything I could dream of.

I don't have words to describe the connection we have. When she laughs, I feels it. When she cries, I feel it.

Tonight, my sweet girl is alseep in the other room, coughing. It's really the first time I can say that she's actually been SICK. In lieu of my above words, I don't think I have to tell you that I feel for her tonight. I am literally sitting here in the other room with tears in my eyes listening to her, knowing that I have done all I can for her and wishing with all my heart I could do more. I can truly say I know what my mom meant when she would tell me when I was sick that she wished she could trade places with me.

Pray for a fast recovery for our sweet girl!
