Six Years Of Sparkle



My Sparkling Gwen,

Sweetheart, I am sitting down to write this and thinking over the last year with you.  You change so much from year to year, but in some ways you stay the same.  I love watching your personality shine more and more as you grow!

Your favorite thing in the world is to laugh and make other people laugh, and you are such a fun-loving little girl!  Your laugh is perfect and unique - it sounds like a creek gurgling, bells ringing, and birds tweeting all at once.  I can pick it out of a crowd, only because it is such an incredibly adorable little girl laugh!

You are really getting involved in picking your own outfits, and I love to see the combinations you come up with.  Your favorite is to wear your skirt with jeans, and I think this reflects your sweet personality.  You love playing outside, climbing on things, hanging upside down on the monkey bars, but you are not content to just wear pants.  You have to add a little sparkle and girly-ness to everything you do!

You are such a little helper - whenever I ask you kids to do something, you are the first to jump up.  You are always looking for ways to assist me, and to help anyone around you.  I love this about you so much.

I've also seen a lot of deep thinking going on in your little head this year.  You ask me such good questions about Jesus and the Bible, and how exactly everything works.  I try my best to answer all your questions, but it brings me such joy to see you thinking things through and trusting the Lord more and more as you grow.

Lately you've been expressing that you want to be just like me.  You want to grow up to be a mama, just like me.  You are dying to get your ears pierced, just like me (we are doing this for your birthday!).  The thought warms my heart, but in so many ways, I want to be more like you.

I want to have a tender heart like you do.  I want to laugh and enjoy life with the same zest as you.  I want to have a heart to serve others like you do.

I hope you grow up to take the good things you can from my example, but always know too that I think you are completely delightful just for being you.  I'll never stop loving you, my Precious Girl.  I love you more than I could ever say.

Happiest 6th Birthday, My Sweet Darling!

Love Always,

Mama
