My heart....

My oldest daughter-
my middle child..
turns 12.

I shall wish my child
a happy birthday!
I shall remember the first time
I held her in my arms!
I will think of her first words,
and her first tantrum.
I will go back in time
to when we cuddled at night
and when only my kiss
could heal her hurts!
I will reflect on her beauty,
her strength, her worth!
I will marvel
at this young lady
who has faced so much
and overcome it all with grace!
I will feel blessed
to be her mother!
I will thank the Lord
for every moment..
and I will pray for a lifetime more
to watch her grow!

Happy Birthday Shyla!
I love you!
