Morning Date and a Birthday Girl

Morning Date and a Birthday Girl

I woke up at 5:30 this morning and decided to go ahead and get up. To my surprise, my husband joined me. I made coffee and he used up the last of our firewood to build us a fire. We had a blissfully quiet hour and a half to sit, talk and pray together. What a lovely start to the day.

On the agenda for today is school, laundry and cleaning. Tonight the girls and I are going to a ¬†concert for Meredith’s birthday.

I still can’t believe that my ¬†first baby is turning fifteen tomorrow! I can’t believe that this girl that started out at 5 pounds 11 ounces is now taller than me! I am so proud of her. She has a beautiful heart. She loves God and she loves people. She is strong and smart and passionate. Part of me wants to put the breaks on so that she can be my little girl forever. But, I am also so excited to see God’s plans for her life unfold.

Well, I am off to a late start, so I better get everyone up and get this day started. Here we go!
