Infected by her joy

12802996_10209159384369682_1643090722240658745_nThis is what I had envisioned for my girls. I want them to be close and I want them to lean on each other- to be the unwavering support for each other when others around them fail them.

I won’t lie and tell you this is how my girls are all the time. At this point in their self-centered lives, they are loud and whiny and stubborn but I already see the seeds of reliability and loyalty starting to sprout…especially with girl child (our older girl).

She has such a caring heart for others. She is compassionate toward those who are sad. She is a giver and she loves to see how her actions make others happy. I believe God gave her a very special gift of kindness and caring and I love to see her use it. Though there’s a little shyness in her at first, she so very much likes to talk to people and interact with them, no matter the age. She crafts handmade cards and writes individual messages to special people in her life so they don’t miss how much they mean to her.

I love this about girl child. Baby girl is starting to follow her lead a little bit but I love how ingrained this is in girl child’s personality. She loves Jesus with all her heart, she loves her family with all her heart and she loves others with all her heart.

What a gem she is.

She sings from the depths of her soul, she dances with a boldness that must make God smile. Her laughter comes from her belly and everyone around her is unmistakably infected with her joy when they hear it.

Though I never want to rush childhood in my children, I can’t wait to see the young lady she becomes as she grows older. What a gem, indeed.
