Happy Birthday Puddin'

I can hardly believe that it has been 3 whole years already! My how you are growing E! Are you sure you are only 3 today? You act 13!

You are amazing, wonderful, special and truly...truly the light of our lives. We often try to remember life before you and we can't. Because it was empty - until Jesus blessed us with your little life.

For years, I would stare off into space and dream about the day when I had a little girl to call me "mommy" and to love. Praise God that dream came true and time is flying.

Every day that passes is such a blessing and such a gift and I pray that I never take you for granted. I love you E and I pray the mighty blessing and favor of God over your life now and always. May His hand be on you with every step you take and may you never step out from under the shelter of His Almighty wings. God is already using you, even at the small age of 3 and I pray that you will always follow His direction for your life. It won't be easy, but it will be well worth it. Enjoy the journey baby - enjoy the "dance."
I Hope You Dance

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance,
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

Happy, Happy Birthday to our sweet, sweet girl!
You are loved so much more than you'll ever know!
