Six years ago today you arrived in my arms. I was so very young, unsure of what to do with you and overcome by love from the first moment I saw you.
You are my joy, my sunshine, my spirited uncontainable streak of light and sound. I am still overcome with love for you.
As I bundled you off to school this morning in new converse with your hair done up in your sweet sister Marie's butterflies I kissed you goodby and wished you a good birthday. I don't have any control over what this world will hand you today, tommorow or the next. Little bird, I can only hope to be the nest you come home to and to watch you grow until you build a nest of your own.
You are an amazing daughter, the most wonderful big sister in the world and a special, special soul. I love you Bug. Daddy love's you too, and Jesus loves you. Happy birthday Princess Josephine. What a girl you've become!
