Isn't She Lovely?

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love




Eleven years ago my life as I knew it would change forever. Life would no longer be about Me Me Me. My first child was born on January 21st, 1999. She has changed my life for the better. She has challenged me and taken me to new heights. She has infuriated me and she has inspired me. She is at once a little girl but well on her way to becoming a young woman. She is my pride and joy. Treasure these moments. Don't sweat the small stuff. It all passes by much too quickly. Gone are the days of make believe and tutus and fairy tales. Gone are the days of teddy bear picnics and doll tea parties. Gone are the days of Madeline and Pepito, Strawberry Shortcake and The Care Bears. Gone are the days of cuddling at bedtime (she now stays up later than I do) and singing lullabies. But, as I say goodbye I welcome the new. Our mother daughter time is rare these days, but when we have it I welcome our more mature and intellectual conversations. I look forward to watching my daughter grow and come into her own. I look forward to watching her mature into the wonderful young girl she is already becoming. (When she is not sassing me!)
