Happy Birthday, Lily!

Today, my oldest daughter turns 5 years old!  Where did the time go?  I feel like I will blink and she will be 15.  Sometimes I find myself staring at her and wondering what she will look like at 10, 20, 30, etc.  I wonder what she will be when she grows up (a teacher like her Dad, a science geek like her Mom, or something completely her own).  I wonder if I am doing everything I can to ensure that she will grow strong wings and learn to fly on her own one day.  But in the meantime, I am trying to savor every minute….

    Lily, I love your name.
    I even had a girl doggie named Lili (not spelled the same as yours, but pronounced the same).
    I hope you have a great fifth birthday,
    and then in one more year a sixth,
    and so on.
    May God bless you always.
    Happy Birthday.
