Just what I need

After I had Austen I was rocking her to sleep and a Michael McLean song came to my mind.

All I ever wanted, All I ever dreamed of. Everything I hoped and all the things I prayed for couldn't hold a candle to what I've been given. I've been given what I need.

As most of you know I was really hoping for a boy, and when I found out I was having another girl I was crushed. Now that I have Austen I feel so foolish for even being disappointed about having another girl. I am so in love with my little sweetie.

So all in all I am so glad that I have my 3 girls. They are the loves of my life!

Ashley, that is my favorite song which is why I'm crying right now after reading your post. I have a boy, yet he is my biggest struggle in life. He pushes my buttons and tries my patience way more than my sweet daughters. Yet I know Heavenly Father gives each of us EXACTLY what we need to help us feel pain, feel joy, and ultimately grow closer to Him. I love hearing you talk of motherhood. You are a beautiful mother, and ALL your three daughters are sooo lucky to have you, Ash!
