On her tenth birthday, I pause and give thanks for my beautiful little girl, who is wise beyond her years. My girl has proven to been one of my greatest teachers. In a world that appears to be moving at one hundred miles an hour, she confidently moves at her own gentle, slower pace.
Like all girls her age she loves to watch t.v, play on the computer and hang out with her friends. But, when the t.v. is off and her homework is completed, you will usually find her lost in a good book. She also loves to write stories, draw and lose herself in imaginative play.
I love everything about her! She is for the most part an easy child; I sometimes wonder if she will make up for that in her teenage years. But for now I soak up all our moments together big and small, and I feel the deepest gratitude that God chose me as her mother.
