Gabrielle's Mommie

I love you. Even though I’ve never met you. Even though I’ve never kissed you. Or looked into your eyes and felt my heart smile. I feel so honored to have the pleasure of being your Mommie. The one who loves you unconditionally. The one you can depend on to help you and be there for you. You’re mine, but most importantly I’m yours. I think about you all the time. Not like I can help it, if I pause even for a moment, while I’m running in this maze called life, your hiccups, kicks, and rolls excite me back into the reality that we’re together. Yes me and you. Your presence reminds me that God is my strength. I love the fact that He named you that. Because it means that I have calm assurance that you will be a strong woman because He is strong. He gives power to the weak and to those that have no might He increases strength! AWESOME! I think about some of the things we will do together. Laugh at an inside joke. Share a smile from across the room. Cuddle for story time. Fall asleep in each other’s arms. Watch some sunsets, watch a lot of sunrises, and enjoy all the beautiful days in between. I think about sharing ice cream cones, baking cupcakes, hearing you say I LOVE YOU MOMMIE, and feeling my heart break because I can’t express how much I love you back. But I’ll find comfort in telling you "I love you 2 Gabby", until Jesus tells us an even more expressive way to verbalize love. Today I thought about how me and your father have the privilege of re-introducing you to our best friend. You’re His thought, before He formed you in my womb He knew you, and He loved you. Watching you grow to know him is a joy that fills my soul and spills out into a celebration in my spirit that gives me hope, faith, and assurance. I am yours, you are mine, but most importantly we are HIS. I love you my sweet Sugar Baby!!! My heart, My Baby, My Gabby!!!!

Love Your Mommie
