Yep...my little big girl turns six today. Six years old..now that's old!
Where oh where has time gone? Simone has grown so much in these last five + years we've been a family. I have been so blessed with her, to be her mom has been one of the most amazing and glorious experiences, never in my dreams could I have imagined the heartfelt joy, love, humility and protectiveness I could feel for another human being.
Until I met my QingLu...I never knew so many things...all of the simple pleasures such a child can bring.
I want to remember the quirky and fun sense of humor my child has-the jokes she makes and expressions she uses, and the laugh ~she hopefully will keep into adulthood ~that vibrates not only her body but anyone that is in close proximity's as well. Her fabulous intelligence and creativity - what an artist I have here! And the fact that she really, really in truly, is such a great big sis ...who could ask for more?
All of which reminds me that this is not only my child, her flesh and blood come from afar. She got some of these traits that I speak of from others... we simply nurture them and allow them to grow. And some, oh ya, all ours....
I am so very blessed. And I know it....
So to celebrate her special day we had a small gathering at our house with a few of her friends. We had a great time and Simone was just in her glory! Such great friends came to celebrate and we are so happy she's made such wonderful friendships.
