9 Years Ago Today...

...I became a mother when this beautiful, chubby cheeked, bright eyed girl came into my world. Although I was very sick during my pregnancy with her (and labor & delivery weren't much fun ;)...she is worth it all!!! She is my sweet, one and only daughter...Madelyn.


I have to tell you that the girl lights up a room when she walks into it. She has a big and lovable personality. I am so thankful that this beautiful creature was given to me by our Creator, to love, train up and care for. She challenges me...and although it can be frustrating at times, I need her. I can't believe how the years have gone by. It's hard not to burst into tears as I realize that my daughter is growing and maturing, day by day....growing into the beautiful young lady God designed her to be. She is a joy to so many lives and I thank God for bestowing upon me, the honor of getting to be her mother. :) Lots of birthday fun is in store for my sweet girl! Hopefully, I will be able to share some of it with you soon!

I know the birthday wishes, from all you dear friends that visit, will be in abundance and let me say a warm *thank you* in advance. Your kind words are much appreciated and I will be sure to let Madelyn read each one!

My cup runneth over,
Katy :)

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
~Numbers 6:24-26

  28. Happy Birthday Maydelyn! I pray you continue growing in the grace of Jesus! His beauty and love is evident in your beautiul smile. The deeds you do in love shine thru and thru, I love to hear of your willingness to grow in homemaking and being a happy helper. I know it is not always easy but you are sowing blessed seeds in good habit and will. You are a daughter after God's heart. Jesus will always give you the strength you need. You are setting a lovely example for your little brothers in so many ways. You are blessed to have such a humble and gentle mother and in turn she is blessed with you, such a sweet spirit.
