Love Overflowing

Emily Grace


Four years ago, God decided to send you to me. I am so very proud that He chose me to be your mommy. I very honored to be able to watch over you, be there for you and watch you grow. You are a true blessing to your daddy and me.

You are so full of life! Your smile can light up a room. You have a charisma and can charm anyone. I love how you have really blossomed and come out of your shell. You will talk to anyone about just about anything! Sometimes I get embarrassed but I love you regardless.

You have taken on the role of big sister with gusto. Your brother loves you so much! You are his world. You are mostly gentle with him and are willing to share your toys with him, as long as he doesn’t slobber on all of them. His eyes light up ever time he sees you and he misses you when you are not home. The love that he has for you is a testament of your sweetness.

Even though you can be sweet and wonderful, you do have your dramatic times. Sometimes I wonder if you are turning 4 or 14! Little things set you off at times and seem like the end of the world. I sometimes call you “drama queen”. Stub your toe- the world knows. Zachary chews on your baby doll’s hand and I come running, wondering what is wrong. I can only imagine you in ten years. Be gentle to your mommy!

You love princesses and dresses. You love to be fancy and dance and sing. Your little imagination is springing out and I love it! Hearing you make up songs brings a smile to my face. Your favorite thing is still your babby (blanket). You sleep every night with your stuffed friends Frenchy, Lucy and Nick on the end of your bed. You love to listen to Laurie Berkner, Katie Perry, Lady Gaga and much more. “Turn up the radio Mommy!” “Stop singing Mommy!”

You speak so well also. Many people can’t believe that you are four years old by the way that you talk. I am so very proud of you. You love preschool and Sunday School. You love learning! Your best friend is Chase. You are so full of life and spunk.

As you grow and change, some things will stay the same. I’ll always love you. I’ll always hug you. I’ll always be on your side. And I want you to know that. No matter what happens I will always be there for you. I can’t wait to see you grow and blossom.

Thank you for being you.

Four years ago my life changed forever. My name became “mommy”. I never knew that my heart could hold so much love for someone who I had just met but have known their entire life. The moment Emily entered the world, I knew that she was someone special. She was my daughter. She filled this hole that was in my heart with her tiny cries and warm snuggles.
Four years ago. Seems like it was only yesterday that I was crying tears of joy and disbelief when the nurse called to tell that I was having a baby. A lot has changed in the past four years but one thing has remained constant. My love for that little girl has never wavered. And never will.

I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she’s sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what’s right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel’s face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won’t end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.

When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.

And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.
