Have we really only had three years with you?
You are such a beautiful, vibrant addition to my life.
You are a gift.
I see joy in you – your bright eyes & your ready laughter.
You are so eager to love others.
I love the way you say “der welcome!” when someone thanks you.
When we praise you for your kindness to another,
your smile beams bright & your shoulders come up to hug your own face.
You run & jump & squeal & sing & you are a delight.
I know you are stubborn, too.
That’s okay. That means you can stand strong.
If you give all this up to Jesus, He will use you in great ways.
I am blessed to be able to watch you grow.
Your year number four is looking like it will be pretty wonderful.
I love you,
