The Age of 20

My "little" sister Emma turns 20 today. The baby of my family is now in her twenties. Our twin older brothers turn 30 in July. I turn 25 in August.

I have been thinking of Lily, knowing that Bub (my sister's nickname) is now 20. I keep thinking about how 20 was the age I was when I gave birth to my sweet baby girl. How can my little sister now be that same age?! Seriously, time flies.

It is hard feeling like I am moving more and more away from my girl as the years pass by. Next month, it will be five years since I got pregnant with Lily. Five years. Just soak in that number for a moment.

I have been thinking about how on my 20th birthday, I was pregnant with Lily. It seems so young, now that I am a few years past that age. I have been thinking about how the month that I turned 20 was the month the Lord turned my world upside down and rescued me from my life of sin and rebellion. The month that I almost had an abortion on August 15th, 2009. I never could have imagined on my 20th birthday all that God had planned for Lily's life and legacy and how much I would grow to love her. How He would give me a mother's heart.

I pray this year brings something beautiful and life-changing for my sister like it did for me.
