One year

Looking back…

every day a wonder
every day a celebration
every day new

because of you

beatbox attempting (!!)

baby girl

one whole year
of life transformed
by exponential love
every day

on this day
praise to God on high
for the profound gift
of you

my prayer
on looking back
at every day
of this past year
is wrapped with thanksgiving
and tied with the ribbon
of utter joy
for all our days to come

looking forward

Happy first birthday, Micah. With so much love, every day – Franna

  1. Happy Birthday, precious Micah. Her big brown eyes look like my Stella’s. She will be two soon and is already talking in complete sentences. And! I have another baby girl coming at Christmas. Exponential Love! You express this love-joy with eloquence.
