August 22, 1995

My girl turns 15 today. On the day she was born, just 12 days before my boy's second birthday, I couldn't fathom what it would be like to have teenagers. I don't know where the time has flown, but I wish it would slow down!

To say that my girl lives life with gusto is somewhat of an understatement. Whether it is piano lessons or viola lessons, youth leadership team or worship band keyboardist, volunteering in the church nursery or going on a mission trip to Guatemala, reading a book or singing along with a TobyMac cd. . . .everything she does is infused with joy and zest for life, God, friends, and family.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I am so proud of the young woman you are blossoming into!

I'm not sure why, but reading this made my eyes fill with tears. I can only imagine how proud you are.

P.S. The tears must be from the pain meds. Or maybe there is some dust in the air.....I can only wonder.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy birthday to your daughter! This post caught my eye because today is also my sister's birthday--her first year as an official teenager (13)! I can't believe it! ;)

Happy birthday again to your daughter, and to my beautiful, fun-filled sister! :D

Very nice! Tell her happy birthday from blogland! Sounds like she would get along well with my 17 year old. :) she is a 12/22/92 baby.

Happy birthday!!

In about 5-6 more years, we should introduce her to my two boys! They'll need a good Christian woman to date! Perhaps we should arrange something? He! He! Only wish it was that easy!

Happy Birthday wishes, a day late, but prayers for another great year, which are always timely!
