Today she is ten. It is hard to believe I have been graced with her presence for a whole decade. I love this little girl. She is smart, compassionate, a bookworm and has a thirst for knowledge that knows no bounds. I look at her and wonder how I got so lucky! She is really everything I could have hoped for in a daughter. These last ten years have been wonderful and I look forward to seeing where life takes her. I am so glad I get to be on the journey with her. Her creativity and thoughtfulness amaze me daily. Happy Birthday, M! You will always be my shining star.
