So some years are just milestones. I can't pinpoint what makes six years old a milestone, but something about attending Kindergarten, reading on her own, memorizing flashcards, reciting and performing songs word for word (almost in key) makes six years old a milestone.
Six years ago today at around 6:30pm on a Monday, Savannah Lee changed my life forever when she made me a mom, and she keeps changing me every day.
She challenges me to draw closer to the Lord because only He knows how to parent her in the way she should go. And I'm sure every parent feels this way, but her way will be special. It will be blessed--full of joy, life, and the abundance of the Lord. Her heartbreaks will be deep. I'm seeing that now, but oh, the heights to which she will soar. The heights to which she can make you soar.
She is the best of me and the spitting image of her daddy. She is fun, brilliant, and kind. Caring toward her friends, she manages to play dress up with the girliest of girls and turn around and wrestle with the best of the boys. She has the Bounds family trait of being good at everything she does. She is one of a kind, and I am so blessed God loaned her to me.
Happy Birthday precious girl! You are loved so much more than you can even imagine. I pray you don't just do great things in this lifetime, but that you learn to just be the best child of God you can possibly be.
With all my love,
