I Am SO Glad She Was Born!

 42 years ago my mama welcomed a beautiful baby girl into this world. It was one of the hottest days on record and a record breaking, sweet day day for our family. Julia Kathryn was the first and the only for a long time. She is still my first and my only pick for a sister. I thank God for her beautiful heart, glowing smile and bright eyes. I know it is cliche, but I cannot imagine doing life without my big sissy.

Her life is a gift to so many. She was born with great purpose.  I am so thankful she was born to my mama, who was strong enough to have this sweet girl all by herself while her husband was off fighting in a senseless war that filled her precious heart with great uncertainty. I am also so thankful that this baby girl turned into the 3 year old little cutie who stole our daddy’s heart in the nursery of Spradling Baptist Church. Sometimes it literally takes my breath away to think of our sister journey and how God meant for us to celebrate life together, forever and always!

We love you more than words and bigger than a number. We are celebrating you big today. You are truly precious in God’s sight and all of ours. Soak up your day, sister. You deserve it!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
