This girl is my heartbeat.
She is my song.
She is everything I never knew I needed, and everything I can’t live without.
She is compassionate, competitive, creative and courageous.
This girl is strong.
She is kind.
She is bright—so incredibly bright.
This girl is adventurous.
She is amazing.
She is the perfect balance of grace and grit. This girl is optimistic, opinionated and oh-so-silly.
This girl is magical.
She is mighty.
But most importantly, this girl is mine.
The world is a brighter place ever since this girl came bursting into it seven years ago today.
Happy 7th birthday to my sweet Emma Claire. I don’t know what I did to deserve the gift of being your mama, but I’m so glad God entrusted you to me. I love watching you bloom into who God made her to be! You are more amazing than I could have ever dreamed.
