A note to my girl read me when you turned 12

Zabeth Says, Kaya

For almost a week of thinking got no idea what my entry will be for this challenge. I am not planning to submit an entry for I have several reason first, no idea what picture to put on , second, been so busy lately, third my English are not better than the others. But, since Kaya is been part of my life and Kaya is always my monthly challenge I have to be productive.

So, here is my layout:

Hidden Journaling:
Dear Grace,
I loved to share to you my miracle experience having you in my tummy for 9 months.
For nine months, that tiny miracle do wonders insides a mother womb. The miracle grows in 9 months. Here's the story, as you know Mommy and Daddy married for 3 ½ years and mommy really get hard to conceive, and daddy needs a lot of supplement booster to be healthy and good shape. Mommy also goes to laparoscopy to view her uterus and the operation was successful. Before you come I prayed a lot to God and asking for a child. God answered my prayer for he listens to prayer.

I also got the vision that I will bear a child with this story. "A child holding my pants ans saying don't cry anymore." After that vision I don't expect that I was already pregnant for 2 weeks and that is March 20,2004.

Mommy didn't get hard time during my pregnancy and delivery of child for all the time I keep praying for God's help and God is gracious.

Read the article clips for I have the same experience I felt on how you grows inside.

Hi Zabeth, Congratulations in your effort! The more you do the easier it will become! I had the same experience. There is a saying... "Practice Makes Perfect"

hi zabeth, love the use of ephemera in your LO. i still have to scrap my ultrasound photos. funny, kasi one of the requirements kailangan magkasama yung recipient and writer sa photo and i was thinking, "si zabeth lang mag-isa sa photo". and then i saw that arrow and i burst out laughing! oo nga naman nasa loob pa ng tummy si grace kasi yun ang theme ng photo. hahaha. pero paano ba yan dear, kailangan CURRENT ang focal photo... but still a great job zabeth. see your journaling helped us know you better. we didn't know that you waited so long for grace and that bit about your dream is priceless. dream come true talaga. :-)

Hi Zabeth! Such an endearing letter to Grace, and truly is a heart to heart talk between the two of you. A Mom and her pre-teen daughter -a perfect time. Lee is right, we got to know you more because of this LO.
