The Birthday Stretch

My daughter officially turned 7 yesterday.  Cannot believe it!  She was a bit confused that after 2 parties, one with the family and one with friends, that she turned 7 on a day with no celebration.  😉  We did give her our gifts and sang to her with a leftover cupcake from her friend party, but  her actual birthday was definitely much lower key than earlier in the week.  I look at her and see how much she is like me when I was her age.  She is beginning to get into music, loves writing and just got her first diary.   Though it is bittersweet watching her grow up, it is definitely a blessing and a wonderful journey.

A peek at her cupcakes:

 

5.12.13

Proverbs 31:2

Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.

 

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day!  Whether you are a mom, have a mom, have a child, sister, wife, daughter, etc.  This is a special day for so many!  And for those of you that feel pain today I pray that you may see God’s richest and fullest blessings in your life and that your heart may heal.
