My Skyler Grace turns 8 today and it is time to brag (as a parent I have bragging rights)!
For those of you that knew Skyler at a very young age will attest to the fact that although a fun, chipper child she was a tad on the difficult side as well! She was (and I stress the verb was) my most difficult child. From the womb she was verbose, precocious, strong-willed and clever. She remains all those things but has really softened around the edges.
Today she is a sweet, generous girl with a very tender heart toward the things of the Lord! Rich and I could not be more proud of her. We get reports all the time of what a lovely, well-mannered, Godly child she is and we can’t agree more.
Even this past week in Zambia together she blew me away. It wasn’t the way she braved the squatty potties, or how she endured the bucket showers, or sleeping in a tent on rocks, or even eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches everyday (which she hates) it was that fact we were able to experience it together! What a special time and memory made! Note to self, next time let’s choose a 5* hotel for our memory making trip. Hee!
My Sky, you are a very special girl and I love you with my whole heart!
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
