Today is my second eldest daughter's birthday! Funny how many years can go by and yet I can still remember the very moment she was placed in my arms. The love that filled my very soul. The joy that she was finally here. I am so very blessed to have had the past 14 years with her. She is not here with me today, but rather in Uganda, Africa with her daddy. In fact, she is stepping foot in Entebbe this very morning! While I am sad to not get to celebrate this special day with her, I am thrilled that she has been given this AWESOME opportunity! An opportunity that most 14 year olds don't get. What a great birthday gift the Lord has given to her. A chance to see a new continent, a new country, a new people. A chance to serve God by serving others. She does this here at home everyday, but this will be different. Happy birthday, sweet girl!! I love you and am blessed by you!!
