What A Difference A Year Makes

Not sure what it is about birthday's, but they make me very melancholy. Especially big ones! 13 is a big one. I have had so much fun planning the party for our little pink poof ball turned fishing extraordinaire! It has given me a chance to see quite a transformation. I am reminded again and again that God has really big plans for her and I am NOT in the drivers seat. Only He knows what He is growing her to be but I am so blessed that my sideline seat is right in the front.

This time last year we were in Texas celebrating with some very special friends, but the nearest family member was 18 hours away. Last night we were surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. What a blessing and how amazing that God moves in ways that cause our hearts to overflow with thankfulness.

Grandmother's sewing decorations, grandfather's making party favors and other grandparents hosting the party and making her a keepsake that she will one day wrap her own children in. Happiness leaked from my eyes from time to time. I am overwhelmed with God's goodness and our blessings. So unworthy of his gifts but so thankful that he loves us in spite of our flaws.

Happy birthday Baby Ruth. I know He has big plans for you!
