(If you will indulge me just a little … Today is a big day in our family.)
God has given me many gifts. More than I could name, in fact, and probably more than you would care to listen to.
Eighteen years ago, I received a gift wrapped in a hospital blanket.
For all of these years I have watched a miracle unfolding.
A miracle of transforming, of becoming, and now, of being.
The miracle hasn’t just taken place in her, but in me as well.
Happy 18th birthday, Lauren.
My thankfulness for you is as unlimited as my joy.
Let your father and your mother be glad, and let her who bore you rejoice. Proverbs 23:25
