Easter is a time of miracles so it's a great time to tell you what a miracle you are...God's gift to us! You bring so much Joy and beauty into our family.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
II Corinthians 9:15
The simple pleasure of watching you today, with your Easter basket and you adorable dress on just warmed my heart! I remember how small you were this time just a year ago. It amazes me how much you grown and learned over the past year! I'm so blessed to have a daughter like you who gives me so many reasons to smile.

Being a Mom completely changes how you look at things, and situations in life. With it being Easter this past Sunday the movie The Passion of the Christ had been playing on TV over and over. So I finally decided to record it and watch it early Easter Sunday morning. Wow.... that's all I can say. I've seen the movie before, and we all know the story of Jesus dieing on the cross for our sins. Something was so different to me this year as I watched the movie... I realized what a sacrifice Jesus really did make for us.  Watching the scene where Mary runs to his side just brings up all this emotion in me. I know how much I love my little Ella and I could not even begin to imagine something like that happening to her. Wow what a sacrifice he made for us! It's awful to watch them nail him to the cross....but I got to thinking. I do that everyday with the sins I commit. I'm a sinner, and this is the price that Jesus paid for Me so I could ask for forgiveness and be forgiven!
