Congratulations to ME!

Today I am congratulating myself!  I am the proud mom of an incredible 11 year old! 
11 years ago, I was given the honor of raising my third daughter. 
As she was placed in my arms, my heart was overwhelmed with pride and joy. 
And today, that pride and joy has had 11 years to grow and I am truly the one who has been blessed by her life!
 My Livi,
even though you are growing up
you will always be my baby girl! 
I know you are getting to big for all those "little" girl things
But I will cherish those days and always remember dressing you in pink and ruffles
Now, I celebrate the way you dress in the clothes you choose
I used to make all of your choices for you
from how I would do your hair to the pretty shoes you would wear on your feet
Now, you can do all of that!  

I see you loving those around you that others reject
I have seen you giving up your last piece of gum just because you don't want somebody to go without
Your giggle brightens my day, it is contageous!
What a task being a big sister to 7 little boys! 
You try to keep them in line and someday, they will be thankful!  :)
Your big sisters are so blessed to have a little sister that they can share things and laugh with
What a treat to watch you interact with everyone!
Teaching your "buddy" to read and watching you take care of him, how precious that is!
The love for God's Word that you have and are learning daily to hide in your heart, is an inspiration to me!

Today, I congratulate myself for having such a sweet, incredible daughter
What a privilege to call you my daughter!
Today, I thank God for you!

God danced the day you were born and I continue to dance with my heart because of the joy you bring to my life!
