09.29.09. Two years ago today, God gave me my greatest earthly gift. I became a mother.
|Avery Drew Caudill|
It was a long trudge of a pregnancy, where I experienced every emotional extreme possible: elation at the discovery of being pregnant, severe anxiety (having had a miscarriage, not but 2 months before), mourning of the loss of my grandmother, a husband working 3.5 hrs away to provide for us.
But, 09.29.09, at 6:06 PM, everything changed. She was here... finally here.
I held her. I felt her velvety soft peach fuzz. I smelled her sweet skin. I was scared to death and the happiest I've ever been in my life, all at the same time. My life, forever changed. 09.29.09
To My Dearest Avery Drew:
You have taught me so much about the world and myself. I pray that I continue to learn from you daily. I am forever grateful that I was chosen to be your mother. I love you more than you will ever know.
Happy 2nd Birthday, beautiful girl!
