Dreams really do come true. Keep dreaming!
I think everyone must have at least one gift they remember as being their all-time favorite.
I received the favorite gift of my life 27 years ago today. While it didn’t come tied up with a ribbon or a bow (that would come years later), it was one I had hoped and waited for most of my life.
When I happily discovered I was expecting this gift, I savored every single moment until the autumn delivery date arrived, a little over 9 months later.
It arrived (somewhat noisily) weighing exactly 7 lbs. and was placed into my waiting arms all bundled in a soft pink blanket with a matching, ever-so-tiny pink knitted hat.
I was absolutely smitten at very first sight. After quickly counting ten perfect little fingers and ten sweet little toes, my life instantly and miraculously changed forever.
I cannot imagine any gift ever comparing to this sweet, adorable and most precious bundle of joy that I received so many Octobers ago. And even though I know there will be gifts of the grandest kind that will arrive someday. This one perfect gift, this heavenly-sent one-of-a-kind gift that made me a mama, will always be the very best gift of all.
Happy Candle Blowing, Hilary!
I almost have no words.
