I can’t fathom it; I’m finding it difficult to comprehend even though I know it’s true. This has been the most challenging and best 11 months of my life. It has been filled with so much pain and tears, groans and despair; and oh, so much prayer and hope, and laughter and joy beyond my imagination. My Precious Sparkle has enriched my life in ways nothing else in the world could have; I am so thankful that our Precious Sparkle is 11 months old today.

I realise more and more how true it is that though the days might be long, the years truly are short. I am going to more purposely enjoy every second I have with our Precious Sparkle; for before I know it, he will be 1 years old, and 2, and 3 ….. and …?0 years old.

    • Thank so much for dropping by, and for your lovely linky. Nothing to apologise for, really; you’re a busy one and we can all only do so much with the time we have. I can totally understand how they don’t get easier; it really is mind boggling, but o, so lovely. Yeah, loads of birthday cuddles, and daily cuddles; one of the perks of motherhood / parenting.
