you were my miracle. you were my healing. you restored my faith in childbirth. you restored my faith in myself.
you taught me that i know nothing.
you humbled me.
let’s be honest. every day you humble me.
and amaze me.
and remind me that you. are. you.
not your sister. not your mother. not your father.
i love you, baby girl.
Jesus said, “it is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. but go and learn what this means: ‘i desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ for i have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

365 days of mercy. nine minutes long. we aren’t offended if you don’t watch the entire thing. we made it for her and yes, she helped me pick all three songs.
