You have taught me to lay my pride down.
You have taught me about grace. Amazing grace.
You have shown me the ugly sides of myself…and the beautiful.
You have taught me how to be a mother.
You have taught me what it means to put my own needs and desires on hold…even though I’m still not very good at that one.
You have taught me not to ever say never.
You have shown me new glimpses of God in your faces, your eyes, your beauty…and even your tantrums. 🙂
You have reminded me that sometimes I have to laugh at myself. (or at least talk myself down.)
You have taught me that one size definitely does NOT fit all in parenting!
You have taught me the true value of a “mother on her knees.”
You have given new meaning to the word “patience.”
You have taught me to learn to love in all new ways.
Oh, we’ve only just begun, sweet Hannah. Continue to teach me, my daughter. I have so much to learn. You are God’s gift to me!
