seven years ago today marks the day our family of three turned into a family of four. and i've been thinking. a parent really doesn't know what they are going to get.
a sweet laid back baby or a wild strong willed child. one that is destined to be a leader or a person who is made to follow. and as parents, it's not our job to change them. we aren't supposed to mold them into what we want them to be. and, that can be hard. God already has a plan and purpose for them.
slowly, along this long parenting path, i've learned to watch our kids grow and become who they were created to be. to see their purpose and character develop before our eyes. do you see the life in her eyes? it takes my breath away.
it is an honor, blessing and an adventure to gently guide boo and watch her grow into a sweet, godly young lady.
she is a thinker and a helper. she is sympathetic and thoughtful. she loves details and is a very creative. she is a good listener, sensitive and loving. we talk about her wedding day and pray for her spouse. she loves her family and friends.
and she loves horses like nobody's business. happy birthday boo! we love you. we love being a part of your life and thank God for you every day, it is a priveledge to be your mama.
