love along the way

It seems perhaps premature to be writing like this but my mind has wandered into this thought pattern several times in the last little while so I thought I should write it down to remember for days to come.

I thought there would be much more that she simply would not be able to do. I thought she would be a lot more work. I thought she would bring awkward times when we would feel embarrassed by her outbursts or strange noises or manners. I thought we wouldn't want to have any more kids because she would take up so much of our time and energy. I thought I would have to teach her everything. I thought I would have to grit my teeth and just struggle through her homeschooling.

I never thought I might be wrong.
I never thought it would be so wonderful to be wrong.

She is an amazing, beautiful little girl who wants to learn and wants to help and wants to love. She brings smiles and laughs and compliments from strangers and soaks up love from our church family, our friends, our neighbors and our own dear families.
She happily plays with her older brother and her younger sister and finds so much to keep her busy and content. She has worked so hard and accomplished so much and we pray that we have more to look forward to.

Last year we prayed for her to walk. And God answered our prayer.
This year we pray for her to talk. I know many of you are praying with us. On behalf of Kate and our family, thank you for this act of love.

    My heart is full of joy to read here of what I know about our little Kate. She is a wonderfully smart and precious little girl. MemMem and Pop love her dearly.

    Bless you Heather - I am glad you were wrong too. Bless you for your candidness, always. She is a lovely little light in our lives and we love her to bits.
