i was in the delivery room to witness the birth of my niece Karolyn Anne.
I remember holding her very soon after her birth and asking God to give this little girl a big heart and a full life….He answered my prayers for sure!
Karolyn Anne is a creative, musical, articulate teenager who loves God, her family and her friends with everything in her. She can be found leading Worship at Church, singing at voice lessons, singing in the car, singing at the house, singing in the bathroom. The only time Karolyn doesn’t sing is in her sleep….(although I would bet she does sing in her dreams!)
She is smart, loves to read, and is a good thinker and problem solver. Karolyn at five years of age told her Mom she did not care for the Saxophone since it had the texture of Jazz. Karolyn thinks about deep things and comes to amazing conclusions.
I am hoping that being a teenager doesn’t change Karolyn’s desire to come and hang out at my house. She is a delightful house guest who isn’t particular about what we do when we are together, as long as we are enjoying the time we have together. Karolyn’s description of herself on Facebook includes the following: I love to read and I love to sing. I am funky and outgoing and love to wear really bright clothing. I go to Muskegon Christian School and my faith means a lot to me. My Family and God are all I will ever need to get through life.
Karolyn Anne, you are beautiful in so many ways. I love how you have grown up in the first 13 years of your life. I am so eager to see what life will hold in the next 13 years. Keep focused on being the best YOU you can be. Be healthy and well, be happy and generous, be kind and forgiving and full of grace. And don’t forget to live life to the fullest. Happy Happy Birthday Karolyn Anne….may this year be marked by lots of laughter, continued growth and an even greater awareness of God and his plan for your life! All my love, Aunt Trish
