What I Prayed (wished) For

Almost 17 years ago I married the man of my dreams. 12 years ago we were blessed with a son. 9 years ago we were blessed with another son. I thought that was it for us. I wanted a girl so bad but didn't think that was in God's plans for us. We decided after much prayer that we wanted a third child and would be so happy with whatever the Lord gave us. I still prayed for a girl. Then, I couldn't get pregnant. A couple of years later we got pregnant and after an ultrasound on December 23rd of 2002 we found out our gift was a girl.

To my Jenna:
Our third child
God's precious gift
Such a beautiful smile
and warm personality
You light up any room
You always make friends
You love Annabell
And your family
Your kind heart makes me cry
You brighten my day
You make me laugh
You complete our family
I love you

Happy Birthday Jenna!

I'm no poet but this is what I feel today.

That is a BEAUTIFUL picture of Jenna!! Did you take that? I am very impressed!

Also, someone tagged me and I thought it would be fun to learn some "random" things about you are tagged. My blog has the info. :)

Michelle- coming from the same family structure... married almost 10 years, birthing two boys and believing us to be done... and then a final act of submission with the pregnancy of our third... came a little girl that I longed for.

I love your tribute. And my heart felt every word... as I share the same feelings for my youngest.

Happy Birthday little one.
