September 9, 2016 | Leave a comment It is hard for me to believe that when I woke up this morning I had a 16 year old in the house. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that I was trying to figure out how to take care of a newborn for the first time. 16 years ago today you made me a mother. A job that I felt ill-equipped to have. You are the one that gets the job of training me through all the firsts. From your very first bath, to the first driver, to setting all of the rules. I had no idea what I was doing and a lot of days I still don’t, but we are both still alive, so I must be doing something right. A couple of years ago I was trying to find a life verse for you. Luke 1:45 seemed to fit just right. Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her. Luke 1:45 God has gifted you with many talents and abilities and I get so much joy in watching you grow. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for your life. I know you have no idea where you are headed, but I know without a doubt you will do great things. Happy Birthday my beautiful Taylor. I love you more that words can express and no matter how old you are, you will always be my little girl.
