Golden Turns Six

You are an original. You are going to be just like you.

I absolutely love when you break out into uncontrollable giggles because you just thought of one of your "what-if" scenarios--like when you heard the phrase "that song is stuck in my head," and you imagined a guy with a music song book literally STUCK in his head!You make us all smile.

I just love watching you bloom.

I love that you still love to hold my hand.

I love that you still want to sleep in our bed. (And I wish we had more room in it!)

Because you are still six. Just fresh. Just sweet and eager to laugh and eager to learn.
That beautiful baby-wonder is still on you, and watching it in you is pure delight in my days.

You spend so much time drawing. Your soul is full of beautiful pictures.
You love animals and you really sense things deeply. You love to hold on to the precious things of the past.

This year you lost another blankie, which hurt your little soul, I am so sorry!
And you lost a skirt in the woods, which you also still lament.
You even cried when Silas dropped his airplane out the car window and it got run over by a truck. I mean, you cried at the memory. Months and months later.

You have the sweetest sensitivity. Hold on to that. The Holy Spirit will speak to you through that as you get stronger and more mature and get to know His crazy love more and more!

But for now, free to be just you. You with the big soul. Destined for wisdom. I am astonished to have given birth to a girl like you. You are not from me. You are from God. Don't be afraid to soar up on your own to pursue your unique God-given dreams. You have gold inside you.

Yesterday you were born. Today you are six.

I love you indescribably.
Love, Mommy
