Today my girl, my firstborn, my constant friend turns twelve. I'm not exactly sure how we came to this place, since it was only yesterday that I was pregnant with her. It was just last week that she was learning to walk and talk and read and write. She's growing before my very eyes, and it is a joy to witness all that she is becoming. She loves others and she loves The Lord. Her smile shines bright and her laugh is infectious. She is beautiful, and I am proud of her, both who she is and who she is becoming.
Happy Birthday Natalie!
|She is lovely...I love her!|
