8 Years Ago

8 years ago today, there was a blizzard in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

8 years ago today, there was a proud mama and daddy sitting in a hospital room in Grand Rapids.

8 years ago today, there was a precious baby girl born — just 5 hours after Christmas.

8 years ago today, there were 2 excited little boys coming to visit their new sister in the hospital.

8 years ago today, there was a baby girl with a tiny pink stocking cap on her head to keep her toasty warm!

8 years ago today, I was that proud Mama, and you, Chloe, were that little baby girl.

8 years ago today, I held a tiny miracle in my undeserving arms.

8 years ago today, I did not even fully know what a special blessing I held in my arms.

8 years ago today, we embarked on this thing — on your journey — together.

8 years ago today, I did not understand the challenges before us; instead, I was just thrilled to have you!

And today, 8 years later, I am more thrilled than ever to have you and to be journeying with you!

I love you, Baby Girl!
