The 4 Year Old Princess


Today was the day - our little lady turned 4!!! She woke up and did something she NEVER does - crawled in bed beside me. I had a half hour just to lay there and watch my sweet girl sleep - a rare and touching treat! I couldn't help but think that on the other side of the world another momma lay remembering 4 short years ago when she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I can not say enough how brave I think that mom was - and how grateful I am for her bravery. We are blessed because of that mom's goodness.

We had quite the day - Chloe had her hair curled and toenails and fingernails painted by daddy. We ate at her restaurant of choice - Chinese!! We opened gifts - she had a blast! AND yes, she got her coveted "spinny chair" - purple even! (Is this the only 4 year old that wanted a spinny computer chair for her birthday??) She LOVED, LOVED, LOVED her cake - a princess cake - and did NOT want candles on her OR to cut her! (But yes, we won that one!!) Then we ended our fun day with a bike ride. I am sure Chloe wishes everyday were her birthday!! We had a fun one!

What a beautiful birthday girl!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
