Today my sweet girl is five years old. Predictably, my feelings about watching yet another birthday pass Mary Mac by remain exactly the same.
She is a fireplug that incites enthusiasm and adventure and wonder into our household, yet also a child that is compassionate and considerate and kind to all. A true gift that is beyond anything I could have expected and certainly more joy than I ever deserved.
Little five year old girl, you are my heart. Happy, happy birthday.
