My precious daughter was born. The years just fly by. She brings so much joy to our lives. She challenges us in ways we never imagined. I still remember when she was a baby and we would sit her on the floor and everyone just sat around her and watched. She was and still is our entertainment. My sweet girl is 7 years old today. She is growing up. Lord I give her to you, but thank You for giving her to us.
