Today our daughter turns ten. In-stinking-credible, isn’t it?
Anna Elizabeth, born a West Texan surrounded by a large and loving family, celebrated her first birthday in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has celebrated the following nine in Indiana.
That makes me smile so big.
I’m blown away by my girl. Her maturity. Her selflessness. Her heart for the poor, the needy, the afflicted. Her spunk. Her love for nature. Her vision for the future. Her ability to look for the unexpected in almost every situation. Her perfect balance of warrior, advocate, nurturer, and young lady.
If we lined up every girl in the whole wide world and had to choose just one, we would choose you, Anna E!
Happy 1st Decade Birthday, my girl. We love you!
