I had lunch with a Sweet Young Thing today…
Blonde hair, blue eyes,
Adorable little freckled face…
Nine years ago today, I held her in my arms for the first time,
And I fell utterly, completely in love.
I never knew how all-consuming love could be, until God graced my life with this beautiful bundle of joy.
My eldest child, my first-born,
My stubborn child, too much like her mother.
My pride and joy, my heart,
My daughter, my love.
