My Middle Girl

To my sweet middle child, I am so glad that God gave me the happy surprise of YOU! I'll never forget as long as I live the first time I saw your beautiful face with the rosiest red lips I'd ever seen. A quick 3 hour delivery produced a round, pink, precious bundle on your grandmother's birthday. I wondered how I would manage with your sister not even 3 years old and another only 14 months old. And yet, God gave me the strength one day at a time (we ate a lot of meals at the hawker center back then, I quit cooking those years!). I gave you the back of the double stroller and let your sisters share the front with one leg hole each!

And now you are growing up. You have such a laid-back-get-along-with-everyone disposition; it draws others to you. Many times you hold your thoughts and feelings inside. I like that about you. I also love your fun spirit and the fact that you are not trying to grow up too fast, rather enjoying being a kid.

I am so proud of who you are becoming.
I am so glad you've given your heart to Jesus.
I am so glad you want your friends to know Him too.

I love you!

Amen! :)

Who does she look like? :) Haven't pegged her yet but I love reading about Essie, as you call her. I love that name and her spirit also.
