To my darling K,
Thirteen years ago, something magically wonderful happened. You were born. You single-handedly made me an Aunt – a position of being both motherly and a friend to you in this lifetime. I cannot begin to express what a beautiful woman you have become.
It seems like only yesterday you were born, toddling down the sidewalk with your bandana & glasses. I remember having sleepovers with you as you laid perpendicular to me or that time you and your friends forced a certain husband of mine to let you put make-up on him. You have a way of wrapping everyone you meet around your little finger and your beauty both inside and out is a true treasure to this world.
We share a mutual love of Justin Bieber & Zac Efron. You allow me to be silly and Jim lets you get away with more than he should. And it’s because of you that we will never forget how long we’ve been together (just 22 days longer than you’ve been on this earth!) or the fact that I missed getting a computer, just so I could be sure to not miss your awaited arrival. You may have come “late,” but you came at just the right time.
God knew what He was doing when He gave you to this world and we are forever blessed because you are with us. Don’t ever forget that.
Happy 13th Birthday, beautiful girl! I hope your day is filled with as much joy as you have for those around you.
Mantha & Jim
