Oh ladies…..many of you know that our oldest child and only daughter moved to Charlotte, NC this fall to attend cosmetology school and be loved on by my Proverbs 31 sisters. She currently lives with Wendy, works for Lysa and Renee sometimes, and at Melanie and hubby’s gym teaching volleyball other times. She loves school, her new family, all her jobs and Charlotte in general.
We are missing her like crazy. She is my baby girl, after all. Then, yesterday, she got to meet Renee’s baby girl. (If you aren’t familiar with Renee, she just adopted a baby girl from Ethiopia.)
While making corn chowder, correcting papers and going about my daily afternoon routine, Kenz texted me this picture yesterday.
I never in all my life have seen her looking so grown up to me. And that baby? The sweetest girl EVER, Kenz assures me.
Someday I’ll share the whole story of her move and my resulting momma emotions.
For now, if you have a baby girl– love on her, whether near or far away. And realize that we moms so shape how our daughters turn out.
More is caught than taught.
I pray our actions find our kids catching us modeling Christ.
