My girl ~ my sweet daughter ~ turned 7 yesterday.
(Our Internet has been out all week, so I decided to go ahead and write this from my iPhone. I hope it turns out alright.)
Anyone else get all emotional around birthdays?
I really can’t help it. And i’m not really talking about crying emotional – but thoughtful, introspective, emotional. I think about their birth-day. Think about the past years we’ve spent with them during their life. Think about how amazing the gift of life is, and how unbelievably thankful I am to God for blessing us with this child, and the years He’s given her thus far. I think about all she’s been through, and what we’ve been through together, and how God has been faithful through it all. I think about her future, and what God might have planned for her life.
I think about these things and so much more….and my heart overflows with joy and thankfulness to my kind God – who has bkessed me far beyond anything I deserve.
Happy 7th birthday to our precious daughter!
