How did I get so lucky?
Not a single day goes by that I don't ask myself "How did I get so lucky?" To say I love Shelby wouldn't be enough. I adore, adore adore this child. She brings me an immeasurable amount of joy. When she first arrived in this world, things (mostly my life) were hardly perfect. But I have been blessed each day with her smile, laughter and love .. .which have have brought sunshine and peace into my life.
I would be lying if I said every day with Shelby was a walk in the park. It's always easy being the mama of such a smart, quick and strong willed child. But at the end of the day I am so grateful she has such a full, and feisty way about her. She makes each moment we spend together meaningful and exciting. She's a hoot. Full of silliness and imagination. To see her in action is awe inspiring. This kid never stops. The world is so exciting to her and she wants to soak up and experience everything!
This will be Shelby's 7th Thanksgiving on this earth with me. And I am incredibly thankful that the Lord saw fit to bring us together. To change my life for ever with this precious little soul.
