All over America children are starting their first day of Kindergarten.
Our Faith is one of them and today is indeed history in the making.
The last month had been about getting Faith fully ready for kindergarten and I am glad she is off to a great start.
There was no crying from either of us, just lots of pictures and hugs.
Faith has been looking forward to this day forever. All she’s talked about is starting school, going on the yellow bus and seeing her BFF Jeri. Sadly Jeri and Faith are not in the same class but they get to see each other on their breaks and bus rides.
I feel pretty confident about this stage simply because I know at least 2 other moms of kindergartener on our street that I can chat with and ask many questions. It really feels great to have other moms that I can share this experience and excitement with.
On returning home, I did shed a tear or two. It all started to sink in for me. Our journey getting here hasn’t been easy.
Faith was the child the enemy didn’t want us to have. Faith is our miracle breakthrough. She is our answer to prayer and our perfect gift from God. She is our proof of God’s love, mercy and faithfulness.
So today we rejoice and celebrate with many other parents on their own important milestone.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (Jam 1:17)
