For many days, Libbey has been anxiously awaiting her 7th birthday. In the past week, she has been decorating the house, counting her gifts displayed in the living room, and playing with the helium birthday balloon sent to her and Delaney by a friend. There is no doubt that this girl is excited about being 7 years old!
Ever since our home was blessed with Libbey, she has been a delightful, smiley girl that loves to give hugs and kisses. She loves to play dollhouse and "cook" food, and more recently she is taking on reading and writing very well. Just a week ago I received a "poem" that Libbey wrote all by herself, and part of it went:
"Thear wus a litol grl that had the tekin poks and she dednt like it bekus it echt a lot and tht grol wus Haley."
(Translation: There was a little girl that had the chicken pox and she didn't like it because it itched a lot and that girl was Haley.)
Being Libbey's big sister is a joy and a challenge, and having her watching me is a reminder that I need to be a good example of a godly young lady to her and Delaney. In a way, she keeps me accountable. May God bless her richly in the years to come, and make her into the lady God calls her to be!
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord..."
I love you so much, Libbey! May your birthday be as sweet as you are!
