Birthday Girl

May 4, 2000 our sweet Gilly Bean entered this world with nothing short of drama.  That's her style.  Still is, usually.  Although she can be shy with strangers and timid in the unknown she is the best friend you could ask for.  Loyality runs deep.  Her sensitive side allows her to feel and show empathy to even strangers.  Yet give her a spoonful of sugar and watch her comedic displays.  Not to mention her love of dancing and flair.  She does so with bucket loads of enthusiasm. 
That is how she greets life. 

In the quiet times she snuggles up on the sofa with a good read.  Rarely will you see her without a book.  Right next to me, not counting the minutes she delves into the story.  She loves stories.  Writes them, reads them and tells them.  Constantly.  When reading, she is still.  Focused.  Just like with horse riding or on the football pitch.  100% concentration, giving her all, determined to be her best. 

I am so grateful that I was chosen to be her Mama.  Everyday I am allowed the opportunity to witness the gifts God has given her.  Moreoever I am filled with joy when she turns to the Word and her friend Jesus.  Unspeakable joy! 
 Performance on the beach
Arms outstretched, and singing a tune!  Never a dull moment.

And speaking of smiles, does it get much better than that?  Always an ear to ear grin, with that dimple.  Had it since the day she was born.  I love it. 

Happy Birthday Thing 3!  I am praying that the year ahead is special just for you.  Never forget you are a daughter of the King, which does make you His Princess.  True royalty my love.
