Will someone please tell me just how it's possible that this kid is 9 years old?! I feel like someone has pressed the fast-forward button and isn't about to let up!
I guess I'm just going to have to accept it. There's really no other choice, but I was up late into the night crying about how my baby girl is growing up so fast! I keep begging her to slow down, but she just keeps on growing.
I'm lacking adequate words to describe just what this girl means to me. The day she was born, and I became a momma, I felt my world shift. Everything revolved in perfect harmony around this sweet little baby girl. Oh, how I prayed and prayed I could be a good mother to her. I remember more than anything I wanted her to feel loved. I never wanted her to doubt how much her mother, her father, and her family loved her. I also wanted her to know that her Heavenly Father loved her. That he knows her, understands her, and that she's so special in his eyes.
In nine years, she's blossomed into a vivacious and lively girl who loves to wrestle with the boys, have tea parties with the girls, run, dance, swim, and give the best hugs ever! She's my pride and joy, my beautiful daughter. She's patient and kind. She's warm and friendly. She's fiercely independent and brave. She's full of life and laughter. She brings out the best in everyone she meets. I pray she never hesitates to be the amazing person she is.
I love you, Adell. Thanks for being my daughter, friend, sister to your siblings, and daughter of God.
