a prayer for my daughter, a birthday wish, and a sweet baby boy…

I am hijacking my own blog for a minute…

I often find myself praying for my sweet baby girl, Lawson, praying that she will grow to be the girl/woman that God would have her be, but I also find myself praying for her friends and the people she will encounter in her life.  Most of all I pray that there will be that one person in her life that…

she can have a PJ day with… even when she is in her 30s…

someone that she can have over for dinner even if the house is a mess….

someone that might help her pick up the mess…

someone that will make her dig deeper… even if it is hard

someone that she can baptize get up close and personal with

some one she can tell all of her thoughts and dreams too

someone she can get pedicures with

someone she can think about the future with

some one she can be comforted by when faced with the really hard times that will come her way

some one she can have fun with

someone she can be herself with

and someone that she might even get in a “little” bit of trouble with

as long as it can count as a “learning” experience

All of these pictures were taken on a super quick trip that Lawson and I took to my friend Bekah’s over the break last week!  Lawson and Eliza were born 6 weeks apart, and I don’t know if they will grow to love each other like I pray they do.   It is a little difficult to try and cultivate a friendship for two year olds when one is in Georgia and the other in Virginia.  What I do know is that Eliza’s mom has been this person for me… the definition of a true friend and sister.  Her birthday is tomorrow (march 1), and I just wanted to take a minute to say THANKS for being a friend that I can 100% be ME around… a friendship that hasn’t been affected by distance, age, children, or anything else!  I am grateful that the Lord has provided Godly husbands for both of us and other incredible friends where we are now, too and I do hope that there won’t always be 2 states between us.  I wish I could come up tomorrow and take you out for Mexican and a pedicure… but we will get that chance sometime soon!

I hope you have a GREAT birthday…. eat lots of cake!

OH… and so here are a few pictures of Bekah and Steve’s new baby boy Owen (he was our main reason for the quick visit).  He is such a sweetheart, precious, handsome, and of course… gorgeous eyes!
