Dear Quinley

On the eve of your fourth birthday I want you to know that:

When your smile dances in your eyes

And you giggle from head to toe,

When you slip your little hand into mine

And announce you have a surprise to show,

When you faithfully help with every chore on my list

And soothe the babies just like I do,

When you pucker your lips for a good night kiss

And tuck your beloved dolly next to you,

When your comforting words soothe hurting hearts

And you bless your penpals with hand drawn cards,

When you burst into songs of your own creation

And dance with joy and freedom,

You’re the epitome of girlhood innocence,

The image of childhood delight.

Like butterflies floating on a sunbeam,

You bring wonder into life.

Aloha! This blog is a window into the active mind of a wife, mother, woman and individual. I may be busy every moment of every day, but I still have time to think. Many seasons have blossomed and faded within my life, and this blog has endured through all of them. It is safe to say that my writing has matured because of them. I hope that you will be inspired to think in fresh ways as you read my writing. To Jesus be all the glory.
