Clara is two.
Two years old today.
Today is Clara’s birthday.
Glad we’re now all on the same page.
On my children’s birthdays, I write them a letter. (Plus I’m obsessed with writing letters lately – I see “Dear Ice Cream” and “Dear Fall” in the near future.)
This year won’t be any different.
Here’s my love letter to you, Clara Kathleen. Happy Birthday.
You are beautiful.
Inside and out.
(Oh, and you have TWO cowlicks – that sets you apart.)
I pray that you’ll use your beauty for good – drawing people to your light, then making them feel beautiful in return.
You are mine.
I simply cannot get enough of you.
Never a burden or hassle. I delight in you, sweet Clara.
You are worthy.
Worthy not because of anything you’ve done or will do, but because you are CALLED.
A fierce warrior for God.
A daughter with power and worth and purpose.
You are loved.
From the moment we knew you, we loved you.
I pray that you will feel and know that love for the rest of your days. That you will find comfort in it.
That it’s home.
You are a JOY!
To be with and around.
A constant countenance of light and joy.
You simply cannot help it.
Clara – life is better with you in it. Simple as that.
Happy Birthday to the sweetest gal I know!!
QUESTION: Children. Do you have them? Want them? Tell me about your little ones!
