Four Years Ago…

I knew your name, I knew your picture and I knew your age.
 
What I did not know is they you would be so full of drama and chatter and life.
 I did not know how much I could possibly love you or how much you would fill my heart.
I did not know that being a mom would be so incredibly hard or so splendidly magnificent.
 I never imagined it was possible to function on four hours sleep or that deep within me was the strength to press on and get done what needs to get done.
I did not know that you would love to sing – loudly; making up music and melody, or that you would love to dance and could perform for hours. 
Still yet to be discovered was your love for others – you have never met a stranger. To you the family is big and beautiful  and wonderful; full of the best and brightest.
 
Dori you are the gift God has given me that I never could have earned. Your heart and spirit and passion leave me speechless. I loved that little baby in the picture but I love YOU so much more. I know you baby girl, your every gift and every flaw and I am so blessed, that four years ago, I was chosen to be your mother.
