21. 21 years ago today, God blessed me with the most wonderful baby girl

I used to think I would dread my children growing up, but that all changed as it started happening. Now, I am so thankful for the awesome adults they have become. That doesn't mean I don't feel a little old today, but the pride I feel knowing that Kaley is such a wonderful young woman of God far outweighs the dread. As I get small glimpses into who she will be in the future, I smile and continue to thank God for all He has done in her life. I love you today and everyday, Happy Birthday to my first baby.
