Every year I'm caught by surprise.

But, it's no wonder really as her arrival was a surprise as well.

I pray I never get over the wonder of the best surprise ever.

In my minds eye, of course, this is what I see when I look at you.

Or this

Or even this

But now you're a Ballet Dancing, Kindergartner.
Of all the things Mommy's can do, stopping the clock isn't one of them.

So Beautiful Girl, here are 6 things I love about you.

The list could go on and on, but here are 6 for your special day.

1) I love the way you love your brothers.
Your presence in their  lives has soften them up in all the right places.

2) I love that you love to snuggle. 
I pray it's a long time before you're to big for climbing up in Momma's lap.

3) I love that you love animals. 
Your delight in God's creation is so delightful to watch.

4) I love that you always have a song in your heart.
Whether it's one you've heard, or one you've made up, a song is never far from your heart.

5) I love that you can go from playing  princesses to digging in the dirt.
Never lose your ability to be well rounded. It will be a great asset someday.

6) I love your compassion for others.
Your tender heart is a testimony and example for all of us.

Once again, I am reminded of God's goodness and grace to me. Neither of which I deserve,
but both of which He's given to me in abundance.

Thank you, Lord for my three greatest gifts, and for making one of them the BEST surprise anyone
could ever ask for in a lifetime.

I love you Little Girl. I'm blessed to be called your Mommy.
