"I Don't Remember Growing Older..."

"Is this the little girl I carried? Is this the little boy at play? I don't remember growing older when did they? Wasn't it yesterday when they were small? Sunrise, sunset, Sunrise, sunset - Swiftly flow the days. Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers blossoming even as we gaze..." (Fiddler on the Roof).

Tomorrow my girl turns 9. She was a difficult baby. She cried a lot. A LOT! She was fussy. She was "needy". I often wondered what she would be like when she got older. Now I know.

She is a beautiful, sweet, humorous, intelligent, helpful daughter.

Daughters are so special! Truly, your daughter has grown into a lovely addition to your family! In Psalm 144:12 we read " ... that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace". I pray this for your sweetie!

Happy Birthday!

She definitely has a sense of humor. And when will she do her next guest post?

I'm sure she'd be ready to post any time...she recently figured out how to leave comments and I've noticed one or two from her here.
