Happy 4th Birthday, Abi-girl!!

(pictures from yesterday as we celebrated our Abi)

Goodness, 4 years ago this little beauty came into the world:

And she has made every day since then more rich.  We love her for her kindness, for her inner (and we think exceptional outer!) beauty, for her beautiful faith, for her love of laughter, for her intelligence, for her love of learning, for her delight to be with and care for people.

We have learned much about our gracious God through parenting her and through watching the world through the eyes of Abi.  Parenting this precious girl is a life-joy of both Donald & I.  She is just a fantastic little lady.

Of course there is the not-so-lovely.  She is 4, afterall.  But in those moments we see grace, emotion, and perseverance come through as she journeys and tries to figure out this wide, wonderful world.

Sweet Abi-girl; we love you for the ways that you are uniquely YOU.  We pray much joy and growth in wisdom as you navigate being 4.  We are thankful that you love your creator and we marvel at the work that He is doing in you!!
