WELCOME THROUGH MY RED DOOR!
Tonight we’re celebrating my daughter’s birthday.
It’s hard to believe that she’s a young adult already!
Time’s flying by so fast…you know how it is…
She was just a little girl, seems like yesterday!
She’s had many birthday parties in her lifetime. She loves parties…having her favorite friends, family, people around her.
When I think back over the years, I think of her with awe!
She’s turning into quite a girl! I mean woman!
It’s been amazing to watch her grow up into the woman she’s becoming.
She’s always seemed to have a mind of her own…even from when she was a baby.
I remember once when she was still in the crib, I went into her room one morning to take her down for breakfast. She was sitting there turning the pages to her book; she shook her head and somehow in her limited vocabulary let me know she was busy at the moment ~ breakfast would have to wait!
I knew right then that she was going to speak her mind every chance she got AND that she would love books!
I don’t think I’ve ever pegged anyone so accurately, ever! Not that I go around pegging people.
But that was easy!
So now as she turns another year older, I want to wish her the best of everything life has to offer. I’ve always wished her these things, but don’t know if I’ve always told her.
There are so many things I wish for her but in short I simply wish her good health!
First, I wish for her spiritual health.
That she’ll put God first in her life and turn to Him for everything.
For her mental health.
That she’ll stay strong minded, always think clearly and wisely; use common sense, not let herself get down and will tackle her problems in life head on!
For her emotional health.
Courage and strength of character. Compassion for her fellow man and passion in all her endeavors.
For her physical health.
That she’ll take care of her body, respect it and nourish it.
And her financial health.
So she’ll work hard and be responsible.
And of course I wish for her
Love and Happiness.
Happy Birthday Baby Girl! Oh, I mean Young Lady!
