18 Years Ago Today!

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Little did I know what the Lord had in store for us. I watched her fail and I watched her hurt. I watched her triumph and watched her grow.

She is such a blessing to our family. She has hopes and dreams just like every other that has gone before her. She loves the Lord and seeks after His will, no matter how hard sometimes.

She has a smile that lights up the room.

Okay, I better stop or I’m going to cry!

Here are some pictures of the party we had for her Sunday! It was such a fun filled day.

Here is the birthday girl and her amazing cake, made by my BFF!
