Sweet Sixteen!

Our first-born child is 16 today!!! I'm not sure where the time has gone, but we are so thankful for the beautiful, compassionate, godly woman Shana is becoming. She is very mature and responsible, is taking her 4th college class, and works 2 jobs while going to high school full time. She dreams of becoming a social worker, because she loves helping and serving others.  

Happiest of birthdays to you, Shanie! I hope you have a wonderful day, and love you so much more than words can say. The moment that the nurse laid a tiny, red-faced, beautiful baby girl in my arms 16 years ago, my life changed and instantly became brighter. You are a joy to everyone who meets you, and you definitely make this world a better place. And to think that God gave you to me! :) Just maybe slow down a little? You're growing up so fast that it takes my breath away. Now that you'll be getting your license, it's just one more step of independence, and I'm not quite sure that I'm ready for that. I'll have a little more to worry about now that you'll be out on the roads of life, but I know you'll do fine. Just keep looking to Jesus to guide and direct you to your destination. I love you!!! -Mom XOXOXOXO
