My Happy Girl

Today, my LadyBug is 10. While I'm still reeling at the idea of my precious, chubby-cheeked, red-headed baby girl being in the double digits already, I'm also extremely cognizant today of the utter joy and sweetness that she brings to our home. And has brought with her since the day we found out about her microscopic tiny presence in our lives!

In honor of her special DOUBLE DIGIT DAY, here are the
Top TEN Things
that I love about LadyBug:

  1. She is joyful and exuberant about her life. She wakes up with a smile EVERY DAY!
  2. That smile lights up our rooms and changes the atmosphere in a flash!
  3. She has a caring, nurturing spirit about her. I can already tell she's gonna be a fantastic mommy.
  4. Her sense of humor and silliness brightens our day. Her antics and silly words make us laugh.
  5. She is a wonderful, loving sister to all her siblings.
  6. There is a tenderness, an innocence if you will, about her that stirs my heart.
  7. She loves to jam to my country music with me!
  8. I love that she is easily pleased and very grateful for so many things.
  9. She is a very hard worker and eager to please.
  10. She loves Jesus, has become very quick to repent, and desires to be like Him.

Thank you, Lord for our lovely LadyBug.
I rejoice that she is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside. Thank you for who you are creating her to be as you grow her. Thank you for the covering and protection You have over her life. May she always be as tender and sweet in Your Presence as she is today. Thank you for the miracle and the blessing that she is to The Gang and all who are privileged to know her.
And thank you, Father,
for the honor of parenting this sweet girl.

The birthday girl and her new bike!
