Of all of life's many blessings, a child has to be one of the greatest. One year ago today my life was once again changed forever. Macie Virginia captured our hearts from her very first breath. She was named after Jamie's adopted grandmother, Virginia Grandstaff, who was affectionately called "Ginny" and was one of the sweetest most pleasant women that I have ever known. On several occasions during this first year of Macie's life, Jamie and I have commented that her name suits her and Ginny would just love her. Macie is so pleasant, so playful, so happy. She brings joy. She brings laughter. She brings me to a deeper sense of awe of God's creativity in designing each person so uniquely. She creates in me a greater love for my Heavenly Father who so richly poured out His blessing when He put her in our life. I was trying to think of something clever or funny to write about the Mace and all her funny ways, but the truth is nothing came except an overwhelming sense of thankfulness to God for her. Happy Birthday my precious, pleasant, pudgy =) Macie!
The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY! Psalm 126:3
