Today you are six.
Today you don’t have to ride in a car seat anymore. I think you probably will because you like sitting up higher and being able to see out the window.
Today it takes you two hands to show people how old you are.
Today you get to wear your birthday tiara and your “Birthday Girl” shirt all day. You will also get to wear the sombrero at the mexican restaurant. That will probably not make you happy, but you may surprise us and laugh through the whole song.
Today you are six. Six. Wow.
You are finishing kindergarten. You havehad a good first year of school. Next year will be better, I promise! You are so funny. And cute. And sweet. You have really come out of your shell. You aren’t near as shy as you used to be. You start conversations with people and speak when spoken to. Prayers have been answered.
You are a delight. Your daddy and I love you so much we can hardly stand it at times. You make us laugh and at times you make me cry. I’m so glad God gave you to us.
Our prayer is that you will listen for Jesus knocking on your heart’s door, and answer Him by giving your life to Him. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you are living a life pleasing to the Lord.
I love you Anna Kathryn. I’m so glad you are in my life.
