A Different Kind of Noise: In Full Bloom

Our daughter Rooney turns two this week. Two. Seriously, where did the time go? As a first-time parent, the jump from one year old to two has been amazing to see and experience. She runs, she jumps, she bounces and flips, she sings, she dances, she snuggles. It’s fantastic, it’s a miracle, and it takes my breath away.

I know that this is the year her journey really begins. This year, she will begin to discover her superpowers, the gifts and talents God gave her. My prayer for this year is that a seed is planted that will sprout and grow into this truth: she is beautiful, she is loved, and she was created for a unique purpose. My prayer is that, this year, she begins to believe those things about herself. And from that truth, I pray that love, kindness, and generosity will bloom.
