My sweet Isabella D'ann.... you are growing up so fast. It was just a couple of weeks ago you said... "mama, I want to grow my bangs out." I wasn't sure why that hit me so hard but it did. Then I figured it out. I remembered when I said the same thing to my mama. You are growing up so fast. There are moments when I wish I could take you and keep you small forever. And then there are times when I love that you love to shop with me or go to lunch with me or just hang out together. I hope you always remember what I have told you your entire life... pretty on the inside makes pretty on the outside. You are so beautiful. Those eyes that pierce my soul... that cute as a button nose.. those perfect eyebrows any grown woman would love... those rose shaded lips.... But the thing that shines through the most is your spirit. You are the most giving child I know. Truly. Any time you earn money or you are given money...you always get something for your brothers with it. Always. Even friday when I picked you up from school and you finally got to "shop" in the "store" your teacher had created.... with money YOU earned for the last few months (by doing things in the classroom)....you got 2 things for your brothers. I'm telling you.. that melted my heart.
Thank you for being kind and loving and YOU. Don't ever be afraid to be exactly how you are... God did an amazing job when He created you. Amazing.
