And I just got giddy inside with how sweet it's going to be.
I know boys are amazing in their own ways, I'm sure of it.
And moms of little boys are as blessed as any mother, period.
But I am so overwhelmingly thankful that I get to have girls.
(All the drama and emotions included. And you better believe Ruby has strong emotions.)
Because it's just such a special bond that I can have with them.
I know what it feels like to be a girl.
I get to watch my daughters have children of their own, and answer their pregnancy questions as they compare theirs to mine.
I get to watch my baby girls become strong, Godly women who start their families.
I get to squeal with them while shopping at a cute thing we both found and agree on and love.
I get to have matching toe and fingernail polish with them like me and Ruby often do.
I get to do be their hairstylist. And we all know you love your hairstylist.
I get to find that iffy line between understanding and remembering what it was like to be a teen girl, and still caring more about their character and purpose and not letting them do/wear/see what everyone else is.
I get to share clothes with them. That's right. My plan is always keep myself in shape enough to share shirts with my daughters. Pants, who knows, but shirts and jackets, you better believe it.
I get to teach them to cook.
To feed a family on a budget.
To respect the environment, because the earth is the Lord's and the fullness therein.
I get to watch them respond and learn from having two parents who are madly in love and deeply respect each other.
Girls seem to look so much deeper into things.
I so look forward to my conversations with my girls.
I know boys are cool but teenage boys don't really want to come in the room and lay down with their mom in the morning and just talk. I get that.
I will love my boys when I have them, there's no denying that.
In fact, I'm sure boys bring a facet to the family that is unexplainably cool until you have one.
But for now, I am so, so thankful for these sweet daughters that Yahweh has entrusted us with.
