Four years ago, I gave birth to my little princess at 7:31 AM after about 14 hours in labor. She was everything I hoped she would be and more. I wished the first few months away...now I am wishing that I would have taken more time to rock her, to sleep beside her, to hold her tightly. She is four now. She is everything that is sweet. She is my constant reminder to keep dreaming, keep pretending, keep laughing. I love her tender kisses, when she whispers an "I love you" in my ear, the silly girl talk that we share, the way she rolls her eyes or shakes her head at crazy stuff the boys do. I love this little girl, and because she is my only one, I love that I get to tell her that she is my favorite little princess in the whole wide world. I am blessed to have a little girl to walk through life with. God answered my prayers. The meaning of her name rings even more true throughout the years...she truly is my "Pure Hope". Happy Birthday, Little Princess! Keep smiling, dreaming, dancing, singing! May you grow to love Jesus even more this year!
