A Letter To My Halee-Girl

Six lovely years with a little girl like you...
You show me daily what grace looks like, you offer it around every corner.

Your tender heart is so other's minded.

Your kindness towards your siblings reminds me that it's His kindness that leads us all into repentance.

Your tender touch and soft words bring comfort when the little ones around here get hurt... they no longer come to their Mama, they go to you when they stub their toe or get a bonk.

Yesterday I was in the bathroom and I heard you whispering to the troops..."Let's surprise Mama and clean the whole house while she's in the shower." Everyone agreed and I heard you all giggling happy as you literally cleaned up every room in the house for your Mama.

You're diligent and detailed in your school work and you love learning to read. I'm so proud of you.

But what I love most about you is your gentle spirit and the way that you love around here. You're the quietest one of the bunch. You don't ask a million questions like your brother Siah, and you're not sassy and spunky like your little sister, but you display God's splendor simply in being yourself.

You, my Halee-girl, are a greater gift than I ever could have asked for. 

The Lord didn't even have to give me one, with a daughter as wonderful as you, but instead He's given 2190 days of sheer joy!

You brighten my days and give the sweetest of hugs. 

Today is truly a CELEBRATION!!!!! 

I LOVE you with ALL my heart! :)

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our precious daughter of the King!
