My Baby Girl

I know that God loves me, He has shown me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when first I saw your face.

And in that very moment when you came into this world,
I knew you were so much more than just my baby girl.

You would always be my sunshine, my love that wouldn’t end.
And when you’re all grown-up, you'd be my dearest friend.


You are the reason I tried my very best.
For you, my little girl, would be my greatest test.

When God entrusted you to me, to shelter and to guide
I promised Him that day I would care for you with pride.

I would teach you God made you, and that He trusted me with your care.
I will always be thankful He sent you for my love I got to share.

Be proud of who you are and strive to be your best
Put forth your best efforts and trust God in all the rest.

I will always be your mother, but I will also be your friend
You are the most precious gift that God could ever send.

Each night you lay your beautiful head down to sleep
I thank Him for sending you and ask Him for your soul to keep.

I will keep a watchful eye, to guide you through this world.
God please protect my little angel, keep safe my baby girl.

How Could I Have Known







Meeting Mommy




How could I have known of the love I would feel
When I would first hold you in my arms?


Disneyland




How could I have known of the pride that would spill
When you would dazzle me with your charms?



T-Ball




How could I have known of the pain I would endure
When I would see you get hurt and cry?




 

Yosemite with family


How could I have known of the joy that would pour
When you would get excited for something new to try?



How could I have known that my heart would break
When you would grow-up and go your own way?



Colorado with mom & sisters




How could I have known of the strength it would take
When in your choices you would stray?





I simply could not have known
Such emotions would ever exist.


18 Birthday with baby sister

Some day, too, you will be shown
When an angel you get to kiss.

Jackie's Life in Surrey: Tablescape at Beaulieu

When I was a little girl my dad was in the US Air Force and we were living in England.  Of the eight years we lived there, I only remember one REAL vacation we took.  We went camping at the seashore and on our way we stopped at the most remarkable place called 'Beaulieu'. 

Beaulieu Palace House

I've often thought of our tour through the abbey and motor museum, but could not remember the name of the place that I found so remarkable.

Jackie of Jackie's Life in Surrey has a wonderful pictoral of her recent trip to Beaulieu.


Thank goodness I stumbled upon Jacie's blog! Next time I'm in England I will be able to make a trip to Beaulieu.
