Oh, beautiful girl… It’s not quite feeling real that you have turned 16 years old! From the very first moment they placed you in my arms to this very moment now, I loved you then, and each day I continue to love you even more.
You have become an amazing person through the years. You’re caring, full of laughter, and have a heart for Jesus. It’s not always easy being a teenager, and having “annoying” parents, but we’re so thankful for you every day.
Watching you drive away for the very first time, my eyes, flooded w/ tears. A mix of emotions from overwhelming pride, to fear for your safety, to sadness that you were one step closer to becoming the independent young lady that didn’t need her mama nearly as much any longer. I pray that you continue to put your trust in God, and He alone, grow stronger in your faith journey, and let that guide you always.
Hope your 16th birthday was just as special as you are… we love you tons!
