Something fierce...

Okay so I wanted to explain the title of my blog, "I love you something fierce." I started saying this phrase to my firstborn each night before bedtime. It has now become sort of our family motto. I say it to my hubby, my baby girl, and my unborn baby girl.

When I became a parent, I was given the opportunity to experience a different kind of love. The love a parent has for their child is fierce, protective, overwhelming, and generally indescribable. You instantly love this tiny little creature unconditionally and I was taken aback at how strong that love is. It's not that I love my children more than my husband, because honestly the best way to love my kiddos is to love their father first and foremost. I just love my children differently.

I've gained a new perspective on how our heavenly Father loves us and it is awe-inspiring. I can't imagine sacrificing my child for anything, much less an undeserving, self-centered, and wicked world. I desire for my child to be happy and want for nothing. I pray she knows how much she is loved and how much joy she brings to me. I can better understand now, that God desires the same for me and takes pleasure in my happiness. I can understand now that He loves us something fierce...


  1. I love this. It's amazing how much God loves us, and how having Finley has put a whole new perspective on that. Well said, sweetheart!

  2. Happy to find your blog. I love blogging and have a great site that will print your blog for you like a yearbook at the end of the year or just whenever you want it. Can't wait to meet your new little girl. I know you are getting anxious.
