The moment happened when I realized that this sudden burst of emotion and love I had for my daughter mirrored the love God had for me in His heart. It was like God was writing a love letter to me, His daughter, through the words I have for my daughter.
Dear Blessed Daughter,
You were born today and I never thought I could love like this. Of all the things I have accomplished, you are the treasure among it all. When I look at you as my creation, I am in awe of what I have made. You were created perfectly in my image. Nothing about you is a mistake. You tiny nose and lips were formed in the most perfect, intricate details. I long to keep my arms around you all hours of the day because of the joy it brings me. I love you. And though there will be times when you think you will know better than me, I will still love you. You are the only thing in this entire world that can fill this place in my heart. My prayer is that you will always know me as the one who created you and loves you unconditionally.
The way I see myself as a woman in this world today is like a broken mirror with pieces showing my distorted body, personality and emotions. But when I see myself through God's eyes (which doesn't happen very often) I am perfectly made. If I am still and quiet long enough I can meditate on the soul of God and see my life a little clearer than before. And when I question God's love for me I just remember how much I love my daughter and know that I am loved even more than that.
