My Favorite Little Girl in the WHOLE World

Katylynn is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me (behind meeting Christ & almost as equal to meeting & marrying Derry).

She makes me smile all day. She makes me laugh a lot. She makes me happy. When she goes to sleep, I miss her. I miss her when she is in the nursery or if Daddy & Daughter are having some time together.

I never thought I would love someone so special so much. As I write this, my eyes are full of tears. I cannot believe that God has given me this precious little girl to raise, to love, and to teach her all about him.

Tonight when Derry was praying for the students, I prayed in Katylynn's ear for her. It was at that moment when I realized the importance of praying for your children and they hear it. I pray for Katylynn often, but does she hear it? How will she know she is prayed for unless she hears it. I love hearing people pray for me. I'm often brought to tears knowing someone cares enough for me to pray for me. So tonight, I decided not only to pray for Katylynn on my own, but in her presence out loud.

Take a look at my little miracle!

Thanks God. I promise I will never take her for granted!
