On this day 10 years ago, God blessed me with a girl, a daughter; someone to wear pink dresses and hair bows. Someone who’ll have tea parties, and play in my makeup; finally, someone who won’t love dirt more than their mommy!
The boys started early trying to bring you to their side, with motorcycle magazines, and talk of dirt while you slept.
But I tried harder with books and tea sets.
They brought out the big guns and introduced you to motorbikes and mud.
I brought out the bigger guns and showed you the delight that could be found in a good book, a brand new stuffed dog.
They tried video games.
I finally won with the girly pink bike.
E, you are growing into a fine, Godly young woman. I am proud of you; I just wish you’d do it a little slower
