Jenny, with Noah, her second child

My sweet child,
When I first knew about you,
I wasn't sure if
I was ready for you,
but God knew better.

When I first knew about you,
I was scared that something
somewhere, sometime,
would happen
to take you away from us,
but God knew better.

The instant I saw your tiny face,
I thought that my heart
would burst into millions of pieces
of love and awe and wonder,
all because God knew better.

Happy Mother's Day, Jenny.
I am so honored and thankful
to be called your mother. And thank you
for giving me three precious babies
to love and take delight in.
