Happy Birthday, Mary Erin!

Today, my firstborn daughter, you are turning 11. The last 11 years have just flown by. It seems like yesterday I was holding you for the first time and saying, "Hello, I'm mommy." And now I stand across from you and marvel that we stand almost eye-to-eye. You are so beautiful, inside and out, and I am so proud of who you are becoming.

We won't be able to celebrate today. Your day is filled with school, clogging club, and then play practice. But we'll have a great time on Saturday! And since you won't be home til bedtime tonight, here's a birthday surprise for you! "Your" balcony has been cleaned for Spring! I love you.

Happy Birthday Mary! I know you don't me, but your mother taught my oldest daughter (and first child. I love your name. Mary is one of the most precious names and belongs to special people in this world. I remember when your mom used to talk about having children before she was married to your dad and how much she seemed to be looking forward to that.

It seems like just a short time ago that I was reading about Mary's 10th birthday day party. I even remember when she was born. Can time really be flying by like that?

God bless all of you as you celebrate Saturday.
