Happy Birthday Finley

Today you are two years old. That makes me a little sad, but more than that I am full of joy because to be with you is to know joy.

You are the sunshine in my day, always quick with a smile and a snuggle. You have no shortage of thoughts and words and sentences and jokes to share with us and the way your mind works amazes me on a daily basis.

The other day you walked over to me and asked if you could sit next to me on the couch. You climbed up and snuggled in up next to me. You turned to me with you bright beautiful eyes and said, "can I tell you a secret?" I leaned in and you came up to my ear and so sweetly whispered, "I love you."

I pray that you will grow strong and soft, funny and determined. I pray that you find God's will for your life, because did you know that He had a plan for you even before He created the world? You are special and unique and loved. We are so very blessed to have you as a member of our family. There is nothing you can't do and I will protect you but let you struggle and love you no matter what. Happy Birthday sweet sweet Birdie.
