Happy Birthday Jo!

Dear Jordan,

12 years ago you entered this world and my life hasn't been the same since. You have brought so much joy to me and our family. I can't imagine my life without you.

I can't believe you are 12 already. It seems like yesterday that you were just our 'Sissy Who down in Whoville'. Now, you are growing up and I am so proud of the young lady you have become. I love that you are concerned with modest dressing. I love that you are not 'boy crazy'. I love that you love Jesus and aren't afraid to tell people. I love that you are genuinely concerned about other people. I love that you are a good friend. I love......you!

Enjoy this day, sweetie. This is the day the Lord has made..........just for YOU!

Happy Birthday Whoobee Doodle!
Mommy loves you soooooooooo much!

************************************************
Lord, thank you for this child. Thank you for entrusting her to me. Please mold her into the woman you planned her to be. I am so anxious to watch her story unfold, but Lord....could you please slow down the time a little? She is growing up so fast and letting go, well, it just isn't my strength. Please help me to be the mom she needs me to be over these next few, very important, years. And above all..........please plant yourself firmly in her heart. Amen.

Happy Birthday 'Little J' from us folks down here in Texas! I remember you being small enough to wear the clothes that you have handed down to Sydney (that she has grown out of already).

Boy do I feel OLD :o)

May this year bring you all the Blessings of God's abundance dear one! I pray He pulls you even closer to Him!
