“From the fullness of grace we have received one blessing after another” - John 1:16

Tinky has Magic in her eyes... its all in that bright twinkle she has you can see it especially when she smiles and even more when she laughs.  She can do anything she imagines, the possibilities stretch from the moon and back.   Madden makes me want to be a better mom, a better friend, a better listener, more understanding, and to have sensitivity and concern for others like she hard to even understand how so many qualities shine so clearly in one little person.  I am amazed by her.  Everyday.
Madden is turning 3 this week.  It really seems like I blinked and I was a mom, then I blinked and she was here.  In a blink there was a baby sister, a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece.  I blinked and she was walking, I blinked and she was going to school, I blinked and she counted, I blinked and her "sucker" was a thing of the past she could write her letters and point out triangles and hexagons everywhere we go... I blinked and she was turning 2 and I blinked again and here we are.  
 In between those brief instances that are now memories there were 10,000,000 hugs, kisses, words, moments that will bind us forever.  In between those blinks I fell deeper and deeper in love with this precious one.  Her giggle is not from the world.  Her spirit She fills my soul with gratitude, she is a delight, she sweeps my heart away like no other can. I look at her and know I can do more, be more and its all because she thinks I can.

Dear Tinky,
When you were born, I fell so in love with you I could never imagine how much my 2 babies would take over my heart.  I hold my breath when you try something new and fight the urge to wrap you up in my arms and hold you like that do things that amaze us every single day. Your sweet spirit and your precious heart is one of the greatest gifts I have seen and makes us more proud than I can explain.  You have grown up so much in a year.  I have watched you make new friends, you have empathy and a quiet understanding that is unreal, and you love others with such ease and so much passion.
Happy birthday baby tinky, I love you with my whole heart ...I can't wait to see God's hand and his plans in your sweet, sweet Tink you are bound to do things, things I can only dream of.  I am filled with wonder and awe that God would bless me with such an incredible daughter.  Keep dreaming sweet girl, let Him carry you to great places and let Him guide you as your magic touches the world.
You are too good to be true,
