Happy 18th Birthday… Another adult in our home!

So our sweet spirited 2nd born turned 18 today and is an adult now! Blessing #2 is my right hand girl and is always wanting to help. I can’t believe how quickly times goes by! She has begun applying to colleges and we are excited to see what the Lord has planned for her…ever since she was 8 she has had a desire to be a missionary to Ch**a.  Joy radiates her whole being when she is making something for someone, whether it be a sewing project, crocheting, drawing, cooking/baking or any other craft - she is a giver.
 
Dear Blessing #2- We thank the Lord for you! You were our sweet 1st bundle of pink. We praise God for His protection over you by bringing you safely into this world and healthy (and BIG! 9 lbs  3 weeks early!) We love your tender heart and remember how you used to cry in the movie Bambi when you were only 2 1/2 or 3 years old. You have brought much joy into our lives and those around you. We thank God for all He has done in your life and are so excited to see where He leads you! We love how you beam with joy as you are doing things for people around you. We are blessed to have you as our daughter.

We had a nice day celebrating Blessing#2. Started out with her choice for breakfast with homemade blueberry muffins, sausage and smoothies. Later in the day we had an early dinner with the grandparents-we are so fortunate that both sets grandparents live close enough to celebrate and share in our kids special events. Then Blessing #2 went home with my parents so grandma (an artist) could help her put together her art portfolio to show colleges.
