Happy Friday, y'all! Is it just me or did this week kinda fly by?! I'm not mad about it, but it does feel like I was scrambling the entire time. Anyhoo, I'm happily staring down the barrel of the weekend, but wanted to squeeze in a quick Five-Minute Friday post before I continue binge-watching CSI: (the entire series is on Hulu Plus!)
Today, my daughter turned one and became a toddler, infancy permanently behind her. It is such a beautiful time to share with her, watching as she grows and marveling at how far she's come. True to her name, she is a never-ending source of joy for everyone in our little family. Through it all, she's come to know that her daddy and I are always close by. When she inevitably falls or bumps her precious head, the first thing she does is search for my face, looking for the assurance. My reaction is almost always the same: a reassuring smile followed by "It's okay, baby girl. Mama's got you". As I scoop her up in my arms, playfully kissing the places that hurt, I feel her tender body relax. All is once again right with the world. She is safe from harm.

Growth is always accompanied by discomfort as we encounter new challenges. Moving forward and walking through new doors means leaving behind all that we used to know. Thankfully, I serve a God who has been there each and every time I have fallen. The last year has been the most challenging to date, but I have been filled with such peace because He never left my side.
I am His child and He is my Comforter.
