Six Years Old

My second born and I have been busy re-living the past six years today.  :)

Sigh…why must it go so quickly?

The past few days have reminded me of how truly blessed my life is.  I love, love, love my little women.

All weekend long, she has been reveling in her advancing age.  On Saturday, we had a big party, complete with many friends.  :)

But best of all was the face-painting. :)

It’s been a fantastic day of remembering all of the blessings we have, particularly because this lovely, sweet girl is with us.

I don’t know if anyone was ever more excited to turn six.  :)  You can just see it in her sweet little eyes. :)

I don’t know what I would ever do without her.  She has taught me so much about myself, and about how to be a parent.  I will love her forever.  Blessed am I to be her mother.

    I thought about her all day yesterday! Even colored her birthday on the calender in pink so I would remember to call. And I forgot! I’m sorry!

    Happy Birthday sweet girl! I love you!

    I remember when you told us you were expecting this little one and how sad we were when you moved before you had her. But, that move was much needed so that we could get our almost 6 year old. Thank you so much!!
