Our little lady had a birthday party after church this afternoon. . .
She rather enjoyed the cake.
And as I watched her open her presents,
and play happily,
surrounded by cousins
and aunts and uncles,
and grandparents (and great-grandparent)
it struck me how many wonderful,
reliable, generous people there are in her life
who love her very much.
And as I looked through photos,
I realized, quite gratefully,
how surrounded by love she has been,
at day one:
And every day since:
Happy birthday, Keira Belle.
Mommy loves you lots and lots.
And so do a lot of other really wonderful people.
Thank you to all of you,
for your support,
