Wasn’t it just yesterday that I met you for the very first time?
Wasn’t it just last night that I dressed you in my doll’s pajamas?
Wasn’t it just this morning that I peeked into your bassinet and felt such awe that you were mine?
Wasn’t it just this afternoon when we sat in the shade and you cooed a story to the fluffy clouds floating by?
Wasn’t it just yesterday when you decided to walk?
Wasn’t it just last night when you moved from your crib to your big girl bed?
Wasn’t it just this morning when you showed me you could read from your Bible?
Wasn’t it just this afternoon that you learned to ride your bike?
Seven years of yesterdays have charmed me with your graceful, loving presence in my life.
Tomorrow will present us with an elegant young woman who is skilled in caring for a home, loving on children, immersing herself in a good book and pursuing Jesus. I’m so thankful we have today to get there.
I love you, my little girl. Happy birthday!
