Twelve


Hannah,

Twelve years ago we were getting to know each other for the first time. I had no idea at that moment what a beautiful and precious girl you would be. And now I'm looking at you and see a vibrant and intelligent young lady growing before my eyes. I've enjoyed every moment with you and pray that as God opens doors up doors in your life you will walk through knowing that you are His first and foremost. Your Daddy and I have just have the pleasure of getting to love and guide the special person He created you to be. Some parents dread the teenage years ,which are now closer than ever for you. But you know what? I'm not. I think that if we keep our eyes on the Lord the best times are ahead.

Ever since you were very young you've liked to compare our feet. You've always wanted to be taller than me and wear my shoes. Well, congratulations, sweetie, your feet are officially bigger and I don't doubt that by summer I'll be looking up to you! Just let me borrow some of your cute shoes every once in a while.

Loving you always,
Mom
