Happy birthday, Patricia!

She turned 14 today! We're celebrating tomorrow night but she enjoyed Starbucks on the way to piano & a evening at the park with her family. I'll post more pictures tomorrow.

Patricia, you're a beautiful young lady inside & out. Your tender heart for the Lord humbles me. We love you!

(As a side note, it struck me today that I got married at 19... that's only 5 years away for Patricia. Not that I'm planning on her marrying at that age. As Eric put it, let's not even talk about it! ;) I'm just struck by how fleeting our time with her could be. Maybe it will be longer- only the Lord knows what He has planned for her- but, wow, do I want to SLOW down the clock & savor each moment!)

One more quick snapshot of Patricia loving on her youngest sibling:

I can't believe she is 14! Thanking God for her friendship and the impact she has had on my own girls. Her friendship is so dear to us. Send her our love!
