I just can't believe that 4 1/2 years ago Morgan was born. And today I dropped her off for her first day of preschool without me. She was so excited & couldn't stop talking about what fun she was going to have & telling me everything they were going to do. It's absolutely amazing that she was told these things ONCE & she remembered them as if they were tattooed to her brain. Just goes to show how smart she is & yet how she is so headstrong that she chooses what she will remember & when.
I was proud of her & how well she did getting her locker open by herself & putting her backpack & jacket into it. She gave me a few hugs & kisses & then told me she would line up & I could leave. I took my cue & headed down the hall to stand at the edge of the corner to watch how things played out. There were about 17 kids in the class, a hall full of parents & other younger siblings & it seemed like pure CHAOS from where I stood. I prayed for her to have a wonderful day & be safe while in someone else's care & waiting for the teachers to take the kids into the classroom just in case they had some last minute instructions they blurted out before everyone left. As the children filed into the class there were a few apprehensive ones that had to be coaxed inside. Mine, however, was NOT one of them. She walked standing tall & with her hands behind her back as if she'd done this a million times. As I watched with a smile that was across my whole face I realized how proud & how ready she really was for this day. I have no doubt she will give us many headaches & make us wonder if we know at all what we are doing as parents but I have faith that she will turn out just as God intends for her to. She began life struggling to survive. She will no doubt use the fight in her for things that will make Adam & I want to pull our hair out at times but only at times. With God's help, we will guide her to use that fight she was born with to help others & to glorify God's kingdom. I see great things happening with this little one & it makes me a very proud Momma. God just keeps showing me how truly blessed I am. I pray that each person that reads my blog will find the blessings that God has bestowed upon each of you. Sometimes they seem small but I believe they are still out there.
I'll have to add a picture of my growing girl soon. Tonight is much too late to mess with electronics.
