Abigail's Grace

Updated on August 1, 2010

She was a wonderful, unexpected gift-I would gladly accept again.

Even when you are sour, you are an angel to me

With a smile that can light up the world,

It is your giggle of mischief-which I truly adore.

There isn’t a thing I can imagine or a thing I could say,

That can describe all the gifts you bring every moment of everyday.


Although you were not planned,

You’re the farthest thing from a mistake.

If I had the choice to do it again-it would be a decision I would always make.

You’re bigger than the rest.

Or at least that is what you think.

Playing dress up with high heals as long as they’re pink.


I think back at the difficult pregnancy, before you arrived.

Even then I didn’t worry, because I already knew my little girl would have a strong will to survive.

You walk with purpose, and determination, everywhere you go.

But at thirty inches tall, you will have to postpone taking over the world.


You love your big brother,

You’re always right by his side.

And as funny as it is- you are always ready to have words with anyone you decide to dislike.

Although we don’t always know what exactly you have said,

Your stance tells it all- as you throw your arms up and over your head.

You put your hand out and look whomever in the eye,

And say I’ll be back later-then turn back around to blow them kisses goodbye.


I named you Abigail Grace- Abby for short.

After my favorite Album Abby Road by The Beatles-a masterpiece of my sorts.

Your middle name is Grace, because I prayed to God to help your little lungs grow.

I knew my prayers were heard, when you arrived screaming, with ten fingers and ten beautiful little toes.


You are everything right, and everything sweet-

Even when you’re sour, you’re an angel to me.

Such a little girl with so much to give.

But let me tell you a secret my child,

You’ve given me some of the greatest reasons to live.

      My mom got these particular wow gold to me not long ago and are also fiatastnc! I really enjoy these products sooooo a good deal. Managed to get these around chocolates. They can be thus confortable as well as cool. I feel they go wonderful utilizing lean denim jeans b/c then you really don't need to put they with. These are definitely certainly the most popular wow gold at this time, my partner and i draw them in the house and want to bring individuals outside (nevertheless its summer months the following so I need to wait till show up to make these folks) They're costly wow gold though mending by using good all of them they can endure some time. I just remarkably recommed enjoying a number of these particular !

      Touching and innocent with all of the emotions of your heart. Only the heart of a true Mother knows the depth of love that a child conjurs up. The JOY of her unique little personality rings clear. She is Blessed to have you as her mommy. Beautiful!

      Of course... I always do. In all seriousness-she and her brother, gave me a new-better-more positive outlook on life. They have more power than they will ever know-and I love them more than I could ever show. Thanks for your comment Sage, I appreciate you reading

      Thanks AEvans,

      I hope that you are right. When I was a child I hated my name- since then I have grown to own it, and carry it well, but with a name such as Abigail-she can always ask to be called Abby if she isnt fond of it :)

      Thanks for reading and commenting

      Entertainmentplus- Thanks for reading and commenting. Glad you liked it :)

      Ken- thanks for your feedback on the hat and on the hub, lol. Kids can certainly bring out a different side of people, I credit mine with making me a more emotionally in-tune person-and responsible for my heart. I am glad you were able to read and comment-hopefully the tears did not come :)

      Ben,

      Thanks for stopping by. Have you had that baby yet? Hope all is well with you :) I am glad you were able to read this one- I know how big of a fan you are of children and parents appreciating their kids. Your comment means a great deal :)

      Thanks Justine for reading and leaving your comment :)

      Mike,

      Thank you as well for reading and commenting-I am glad that you liked it. I write many letters or poems for my kids as they are growing so when they are older they can have them. I like many parents keep special outfits, locks of hair, birthday cards from my grandparents for my children etc. in a keep sake box for each of my kids. But I figured that things such as a poem or a letter are more personal and I hope that they appreciate them as they grow older. :)
