For those of you who have been blessed with having as many children as you like perhaps you will not understand this....I prayed for years for my Ellianna.
One day I decided to give it up...I was content with my one child...thought that was how my life should be and was willing to go on with that. I looked into different ways of serving in our church and then....I found out that I was expecting Ellianna.
Ellianna means "God has answered" and He certainly did. He even answered right down to her curly hair and blue eyes. For those of you who know Ellianna you know that she loves life. She isn't a "fragile" flower...she embraces life with GUSTO!
When our house is quiet it usually means there is trouble....a crash will soon follow! She loves to sing, she is very loving and has the most tender heart I have ever seen.
Every day is a gift with Ellianna...even the days I clean mess after mess. I prayed and prayed for her and feel blessed that God gave me two beautiful children. I am blessed! So, Happy Birthday my dear Ellianna! I love you SOOO much!
AS much as I'm grateful for my two children I still feel a huge gap between the two of them....its so obvious sometimes it hurts....but God knows best...He knew what I needed...and even though I sometimes question I know He knows best!
May His name be praised!
