3 year old Princess

I’ve been writing this post in my head all day, but haven’t had a chance to sit and do it.  …and now of course my brain is in a total fog and I’m exhausted.  But I couldn’t let the day slide away without sharing a few thoughts about my favorite little girl named Grace.

Her smile is sunshine in our house, as is her giggle.

Her facial expressions and dramatic storytelling keep us in stitches.

We might occasionally complain about the non-stop flow of words pouring out of her mouth, but 1) she comes by it honestly & 2) I do LOVE getting to know what goes on in her amazing little brain.

She has taught me that the old adage “each kid is different” is true. There is in fact no ‘one size fits all’ in parenting.

She is a constant reminder that in all I do and all I aim to be, I need God’s undeserved mercy towards me. I need His help. I need His Grace.  Not only that, but it’s all I NEED.  And I can’t ‘add anything to it’.  I can’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it.  Much like the sweet little girl with no middle name that graces my day with kisses and hugs and giggles and singing.

I love you “super”, Grace Burns, and I love that I get to watch you grow up more & more each day.
