Two years, and so much life


 My third and final baby turned two yesterday. Two years, and so much life, have gone by since her amazing home birth. I keep trying to find the words to describe my feelings, but I can't.

Three weeks after she was born, our family went through a trial that brought us closer to the breaking point than I ever want to be again. In a way, I think her birthday will always be a reminder of that for me. Remi Grace. In the two years since she was born, God has filled our lives with Grace abounding. She is a reminder of God's constant protection, constant guidance, and love overflowing. And, of course, His Grace. I can't imagine what our lives would be without it. I can't imagine what our lives would be without her.

God's Grace. My sweet Remi. My life is amazingly better because of both.

Well, my sweet daughter, I think you found the perfect words! It's been an action-packed, and blessed, two years. Mom

Kristin, I hope my words came out like I meant them to. I am interested to hear your thoughts. You've got your eyes on Christ, the right focus. I KNOW in 2 years you will be saying the same thing :)
