On Love

There are moments in this life when my soul wants to burst with love. 

I sit here thinking of you, of what you mean to my heart and I can barely get the words out. 
Utterly overwhelmed by blessing and goodness and kindness. 

This little chunk is teaching me so much about love, but so many of those lessons are echos of what the people in my life have shown me over the years.

My dad... who lives 1 Corinthians 13. Who prays to truly love those he disagrees with. 

My mamae... the greatest cheerleader a gal could ever have. She makes me feel like I can conquer the world! As I learn to love my son, I am learning just how much you love me, and it is dizzying. 

Cruz's aunties... you know who you are. Your daily doses of honesty and affirmation keep me grounded and challenged. I am seriously blessed by your friendships. 

Tovi, Tovi. We have been together for almost eight years. You are my rock, my strength. You dream big for me. I could not ask for a better husband, best friend, partner and father for our baby. You love me with patience, hope, humor, forgiveness and grace. I love spending forever with you. 

CruzKid, you were born into family with flaws and quirks. But man oh man will we love you all the days of your life. 


  1. Becca, Being a parent teaches you so much about how our parents and our God love us. Cruz is a good teacher, isn't he?! Grandpa and Grandma have reminded me many times that God loves our children even more than we do. And that is very comforting. Keep up the good work! Love and prayers, Auntie Beth

  2. OH! These pictures are precious and this post is sure heartwarming! Can't wait to see YOU and the little man on Saturday. xoxox to both of you!

  3. I feel as though I am constantly learning how small I am and how BIG He is... His love for us is overwhelming. Good thing we'll have eternity in Heaven to keep learning and experiencing it!
