Until I Met You

Until I met you, I never knew what it was like to have a daughter.  

Until I met you, I had never felt so helpless and such a loss of control.  

Until I met you, I had never been faced with losing one of my children. 

Until I met you, I did not think I could survive my worst nightmare.

Until I met you, I had never been before God in such utter brokenness.

Until I met you, my faith had never been tested through the fire.

Until I met you, my priorities were a mess.  I didn't think they were, but they were.

Until I met you, I was living the life I thought I wanted to live.

Until I met you, I didn't know the true compassion and selflessness of my boys.

Until I met you, I did not know that quiet strength existed.

Until I met you, I did not think an earthly relationship could exist in which no words were ever spoken.

Until I met you, I didn't know a smile would be all I would ever need.



Happy Birthday baby girl, you enrich our lives more than words could ever express.
