#3. Save the day. She’ll grow up looking for a hero. It might as well be you. She’ll need you to come through for her over and over again throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape and blue tights optional.
I am almost 35 weeks pregnant according to my “dates” but I think the time of arrival is sooner than the dates would agree. I feel like there is SO MUCH YET TO DO and I feel overwhelmed. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I still have some unanswered questions looming and a few odds and ends to secure. But really, the truth is that we are never really as ready as we want to be or think we are. When God is ready for LucyKate to join us on this side of the womb, she will join us, despite our best or worst efforts to plan and prepare for her arrival.
Today I landed on a website that I just love. Its called “Life to Her Years” and its advice from a dad to other dads of daughters. I never got to know my birth father. My grandpa was an AWESOME father figure for me in my childhood years and loved me like his own daughter, and I was blessed with a loving step-dad when I was 11, just in time for the crazy teen years, someone give this man a medal!
But, looking at these pics and reading this man’s advice makes me teary. While I will always wish I had experienced this kind of love and affection from a flesh and blood birth father, I am so very thankful that I will get to witness my own daughter experiencing this kind of love and affection from my husband.
Thank you Lord for an amazing husband and daddy to be for my LK.
