My precious darling girl turned 8 years old yesterday. What a joy and treasure this sweet girl is in our lives! She radiates love and joy and just shines like a ray of sunshine!
I loved watching her face as she walked into the lounge to a table full of pressies in her honour. It was quite a big moment for Brett and I giving her her first real "big girl" bicycle! Both of us so vividly remember getting our first real bikes from our parents growing up. Looking at this big bike reminded me just how quickly she is growing up!
Daddy and Leelee share a precious moment as he reads her our card. I love the bond they share.
"Thanks Lala for my pretty top! I've been wearing it everyday!"
"And my sparkly dress!!!" She is saving it for her party on Friday ;0)
Big sis gives her a lovely pressie ...
And patiently reads all her precious cards from her Granny & Pops & Lala who are overseas.
This mommy finally gets a snuggle in and can't stop thanking God for the gift of love that this precious little girl has always so lavishly given to each of us in her family.
I am truly choosing to savour my time with this little girl, because before I blink she will be a little lady!
"I love you my Leelee. Thank you for being the most wonderful snuggle-bug and for showing me how much our Jesus loves us! Every time you smile and your eyes sparkle, I'm almost certain that I can see His smile beaming at us through you!"
Love from a very grateful mommy xoxoxox
