Can it be?

How can it be that today you are six years old? In a blink of an eye you transformed from a tiny pink bundle to a courageous, confident, funny, clever, thoughtful, empathetic, smart and beautiful girl that you are today.

I love knowing you.

I love teaching you.

I love learning from you.

I love seeing the world through your eyes.

I love hearing you sing (or hum).

I love watching you dance.

I love seeing you giggle . . . and hearing you laugh.

I love studying your big brown eyes and their many expressions.

I love mothering you.

On your birthday and Thanksgiving, I am humbled and grounded and sometimes mystified by this journey of mothering.

I love you Licious.

I am so very proud of the mother you are. The wife you are. The daughter you are. The person you are.

I love you Boo
