Lily: 4 months and counting

A friend once described Lily of the Valley as "a delicate white flower in the midst of broad stalks." I smiled.

She is our Lily of the Valley. Our beauty child amidst all the masculine. The pink sleeper in a pile of blue laundry. The Princess among the Little Princes.

Yes, to many she is simply another child. Nothing out of the ordinary...but she is our treasure. Our miracle. And we love her.

Each day I see five miracles before me.

My five Ordinary Miracles.

Precious beyond words.

She may be a lot of things, but one thing is for certain...she is loved.

God bless your day sis.
