Happy 10th Birthday, girl! I am so behind writing your birthday letter, but December birthday letters always seem to come a few months late. I tend to need a little extra time to recover from all of the excitement and hustle and bustle from the holidays.
I loved how you planned your very own birthday party this year. You got every detail together, made invitations, and handed them all out on your own. You are growing up to be an independent young lady, and that’s not a bad thing! You know what you want in life, and you go for it.
I love that about you, but what I love most is hearing you belt out gospel songs as you wash and fold the laundry each day. You do everything in life with a song in your heart. Whether it’s folding clothes or helping Daddy on the farm, you always have a cheerful attitude.
Your laugh is contagious and has to be reeled in every once in awhile. But, I’m so glad you can laugh and find joy no matter what situation arises. You are such a blessing!
Time is going by so quickly, but each and every minute with you is one well spent. I’m so thankful that the Lord brought you to us almost 4 years ago! We love you way more than you could ever imagine.
Nehemiah 8:10 – …for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
