I Never Knew, I Just Never Knew
I never knew how much I would adore you.
Daughter---you are everything I never even dreamed of.
...use a higher, sweeter, teenier voice when you are trying to persuade me
...prefer pink and "pee-pull" [purple] to all other colors
...layer yourself in dresses and skirts and always place a crown in sight upon your head
...bat your eyes and twirl around when I tell you how beautiful you are
...love babies like your mother
I always wanted children, and sure one day... someone I could buy pink for... but I wasn't prepared for the days to turn into months and then into years... of me still in sheer awe of the loveliness of having a daughter.
No one prepared me for the innocent beauty of a first little girl.
I cherish you so, and by the grace of God will always protect and nurture all of your beauty.
