With just three more days til Lil's first birthday, I have to confess I have been a bit emotional these days. As I am remembering that beautiful day, my heart is overwhelmed at what an amazing year it's been.
I went back and read my "I had a dream" post this morning...and I cried just remembering how it felt to write those words. Because here we are today, totally at home in Holland.
And it's a beautiful thing.
I am so very honored to be this little girl's Mama. I am so very grateful and blessed to be on this journey with her....
...as well as with all of the friends we've made here since her birth. I've said it so much, but it still holds true- you made all the difference this year.
So with three days to go til this special Sunday, when we will light candles and sing happy birthday to our little princess, and smile and cry and remember that incredible day of change and joy one year ago...I am sooo excited to announce our final birthday giveaway...

I have been in love with these "fingerprint" necklaces since Lily was born. (note to my kids: ..mother's day is coming up..teehee:))
So here is the deal...just leave a comment on this post, telling me who or what has made a "fingerprint" on your life...something or someone that made a lasting impression on you...and a winner will be drawn on Lily's birthday.
This year has been a remarkable year for our family..with the fingerprints of God all over it. Events that at one time might have seemed random or out of control, were in fact carefully orchestrated by a loving and gracious Father. He gave me a perfect gift in Lily, and I am forever grateful for his love and mercy in that deliberate and tender act of grace. I don't deserve the blessing He showered upon me one year ago this Sunday...she is more than I could ever ask for.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
