Happy Birthday Avery!

To my beautiful little girl,

You taught me to be a mommy. You showed me that it's worth it to slow down. I see the world through your eyes and it is exciting again. You have made me laugh until my sides hurt. When you are hurting, my heart literally is in pain. I am much more patient and even a little bit more fun. I take more in stride. I have learned to let things go. You are proof of God's grace. I can't wait until you wake up in the morning to see you. I miss you when you are taking a nap. Those big blue eyes can melt me. You smile from your heart. You call me your best friend and I tear up. When you came- I understood true contentment. You are a little miracle. You came when I needed you the most. You are proof of God's plan and timing. Some day when you have a baby you will finally understand how much I love you. I want you to pursue any dream you want. I will do whatever you need me to do to make that happen. I think about your first day of kindergarten, your senior prom, the day I am going to take you to college. What an exciting 15 years we are about to have together. No matter what path you choose, no matter where life takes you, I love you.
