Dear Laura Kate (3 Years)

one....two.....THREE!!!!




My sweet girl,

Today, my beautiful and brilliant girl, you turn 3 years old. It is so hard for me to believe. The past year with you has been one of the greatest and hardest years of my life. I love being your mom every single second of every day. You teach me more things than I teach you. Some of my favorite things about you are:

  • You have a heart that cares about every person in the room. You are sensitive to the emotions of everyone. If we laugh, you laugh. If we cry, you cry. You want to make sure everyone is not just ok, but happy. My prayer is that as you grow up, you will develop this sweet gift of mercy and that it would translate into a deep passion of petitioning the father for the hearts of those you love. I pray that this would not translate to a fear of man.
  • You delight in attention from your daddy. Your favorite part of the day is when he walks in the door. You laugh with him, play with him, color with him, and my personal favorite, you even convince him to have tea parties with you. My prayer is that you will recognize the blessing you have in your daddy, who every day seeks to show you the ways of your heavenly daddy.
  • You love to create. Markers, crayons, paint, play-doh, pencils, pens, scissors, glue, glitter, cameras, you name it and you create it. My prayer is that you never lose this ability to see beauty from nothing and that in everything you create, you will remember and know the original creator.
  • You love to make people laugh. And it's not that difficult. You are the funniest kid I have ever known. I laugh at least ten times a day at something you say or do. My prayer is that the Lord would use you to bring smiles and laughter to the hearts of people for your entire life.
If I could use one word to describe you, it is JOY. You bring joy, you are joy, you live joy. What an honor it is to experience the intensity of the joy that comes with being your mother. Happy Birthday, my little sassy pants. There is not a more loved little girl in the entire world.
