How do you measure, measure a year
In daylights? In sunsets? In midnights? In cups of coffee?
In inches? In miles? In laughter, in strife?
How do you measure a year in the life?
How about love?
(Seasons of Love – Jonathan Larson)
How do you REALLY measure a year?
Its truly hard to do! Especially the FIRST year of a precious life.
THAT is even harder. I know. I’ve done it twice! and I still can’t believe how fast time can go.
Quick little insight, this absolutely adorable little man with a smile that will MELT your heart was born the same week as my little man and one other very special little guy at our church (More to come on their little 3 Amigos Cake Smash Session) It has been so much fun to watch Gabe and the other two all grow and change right before our eyes. Gabe has such a sweet personality and no matter what will always greet you with a smile. I don’t remember ever seeing him stay upset. And his expressions!! I can’t wait to continue to see his personality grow and develop.
Gabe- I know the chances of you reading this in the next 6-12 years (or ever) is slim to say the least, but in any case, here goes. You are such a joy and a bright sparkle to everyone around you. I pray that that sparkle continues and grows and spreads joy to everyone you meet. I pray that God births in you a deep desire and strength to fulfill His purpose for you in your life. I can not WAIT to see what He has in store for you and watch you grow and blossom into a wonderful Godly young man!
Mama- You are doing such a good job! I know not every moment or every day is easy but you have done so great! Keep going! You got this cat by the tail! I am so SO happy for you and Kaisho and your beautiful blooming family! I pray that God continues to strengthen, lead and guide you on this beautiful and adventurous journey you are on.
