Here is our Milestone. Dear Precious One,
What a blessing you are. What a beautiful child of God that I have had the privilege to raise. You have far exceeded all dreams that I could have ever had with your grace, love, forgiveness, and beauty.
When you were a newborn, I held you close to me and I began to cry. Daddy walked into the room and saw me crying and he asked me what was wrong. Through my tears, I said “She is so small and so beautiful. I am going to blink, one day and she will be 10 years old. I will blink again and she will be driving. Then, I will blink again and she will be 18 and graduating high school….then she will leave and begin her life.” He laughed and told me to take it one day at a time, that it won’t go by so fast.
Look at the beauty you have become. 18 yrs old and a graduate of high school. You may be too big for my lap, but you are never too big for my arms. I simply adore you. I praise God every day that He allowed us to be your parents and to have the privilege of raising you.
May you continue to always follow the narrow path and be a city on the hill!
