While I was doing some behind the scenes work on my blog, I discovered that I never did a birthday post for Mary. When she turned 13. In April. Guess I don’t need to clear a spot for that Mom of the Year Award, right?
Thankfully, Mary is a very gracious, forgiving young lady and she loves me anyway. I do buy her chocolate and let her stay up late for movies, so it all balances out.
I’m not sure what I would do without this precious, young lady. She brings smiles and laughter to our home.
One thing that I notice again and again about Mary is how she loves the little ones. No matter what special treat she is whipping up, she always invits a little one to help her. Mary can turn the simple task of folding laundry into a game that has all the little ones begging to play.
I love to hear Mary play the piano. Even without lessons, she is constantly learning more and more. She is doing an excellent job of pushing herself and working hard. The results are beautiful.
I am excited to see how the Lord uses her in the coming year. She has become a delightful young lady with many talents. Praying that the Lord will use them in mighty ways.
Happy Birthday, Mary!
