Me and my baby at nine months old… my mama and me at five
The same sweet dress handed down, so soft and worn and loved on

 My girl is a bit small for her age and these spring ruffles I wore 27 years ago
are just now buttoning up just right and coincidentially coming back in style, so fun!

Her blue blue eyes and rosy lips make her my perfect real-live dress-up dolly!

Oh, Nollie
How wonderful it is to be your mama!
To realize all the little and lovely things my mama did for me
that made such a large difference in who I am and who you are going to be

Its this generational love that connects us so deep inside 
and we learn what it means to be a child of God
to inherit His matchless love and wisdom
Grace and mercy
Kingdom and calling

Because we belong to a Love so much greater than any earthly family can provide
And I'm forever grateful to share that Love with you, my Dear 
to hand it down to your children's children, soft and worn
Like a vintage garment that fits just right

"For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, 
His faithfulness and truth endure from generation to generation."
Psalm 100:5
