Jillian is 5 - Finally!!

Jillian - you are finally 5 years old.  Everyone else in the family has a March, April, May, or June birthday & you have had to wait all the way to October.  There were some days I wasn't sure you were going to make it.  You have asked countless times, 'Is today my birthday? Tomorrow?  Next week?'  And when I said no, your reply was 'my birthday isn't until forever.'  I know sweetie, it has seemed like forever for your birthday.  I promise you it will not always seem like forever.  In fact, quite the opposite.  You'll be thinking, 'It's October 5th already?'

You, Jillian, are an amazing little girl.  Your energy, love & intensity are unmatchable.  You have a delicately balanced need for equal social & alone time.  You LOVE to talk, play with your sisters, take care of your sisters, help me clean the windows (I think you just like to spray the Windex), candy, dancing, playing with your animals.  You have an infectious smile, and an abounding love.  I am SO blessed by you, and so humbled that God would entrust Papi and me to be your parents.  WOW!
Jillian, we love you, and are so excited to see what God has in store for your life. It is our prayer that you would grow to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your mind, and with all of your soul!






Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but in all of your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:6-7

For You are my rock and my fortress, for Your name's sake you will lead me and guide me.    Psalm 31:3
