Olivia turns 18….

20110831194018548_0005Happy birthday to you. I Woke up with a party in my heart celebrating you. Delighted with who are and excited to continue to marvel at who you will become. I remember the days of first meeting you and loving everything about you. That has never not changed over 18 years and I continue to enjoy any moments we can spend together.

There is something about Olivia that is magnetic….

It could be her eyes, her smile, her  quick wit, her honesty, her giggle, vulnerability or her strength.

There is something about this girl that lets you know she is the real deal….

When I think about Olivia I think of commitment, tenacity, values, faith, humor, reading, inspiration, love, loyalty and family. IMG_0205

Olivia, I pray for you every day and ask God to continue to hold you close, love you deep and lead you down paths of great adventure. I pray that he will comfort you when your sad and whisper loudly to remind you of your beauty, value and worth. You have learned well in these last years that the storm can be strong but that Hope anchors your soul….

I am proud of who you are and who you are becoming.

I am proud of your ever-growing faith and how you stand for it and creatively share it.

I am proud of your work ethic and your willingness to give something your all!

I love you Livi lou and always remember you hold a special place in my heart!
