Happy 10 Elisabeth

We are celebrating our Elisabeth’s tenth birthday!   It seems as if it was just this morning they put my little pink muffin in my hands.  Yet, when I think of the journey these last ten years have taken us on it seems we should all be a hundred.

While Elisabeth shares the beautiful heart of her brothers and sisters she is also so different from our other children.  She is super outgoing and confident which makes her a natural when it is time to get in front of an audience.  Elisabeth loves so big in a way that seems effortless and even more so when someone seems unlovable.  Her grace and eloquence are beyond her years.  Her concern for her friends and loved ones, and those she has never met, teaches us all so much.

Elisabeth is quickly becoming an accomplished violinist and aces her way through fifth grade.  This year she has begun private art lessons and we have been amazed to watch her talent bloom.  

2017 has brought many changes and much growth for our girl including glasses and in a few weeks braces.  She takes each new challenge and change as if it was nothing with a sense of excitement, adventure and endless joy.  

Her birthday plans were changed twice to accommodate a family who needed the day more and without a thought she smiled and said okay that will be great!  God bless it may I learn to have a heart like Elisabeth before I leave this earth.  So we baked this beautiful cake, made enchiladas and played games to celebrate.  Happy birthday sweet girl.  After three big brothers  I will never forget the tears I shed when Dr. A placed you in my arms and said, “Congratulations you have a daughter.”
