Eleven years ago my life changed forever. I quickly learned what it truly looks like to put another before myself. I think my heart grew that day and became soft over night. She became my everything in an instant. Over the years I have been amazed at who God is creating her to be. She has a gentle spirit, loves others deeply, and is always ready with a helping hand. She is strong and soft all in one. We are entering a new territory as she is officially a tween. I can already see how sleeping in is about to take on a whole new meaning. How the days of me picking her outfits are long gone. She is almost my height and we are so close to being able to share clothes. I am eager to enter this new stage of life along side her. I am sure it will have its learning curves with a few ups and downs, but there is no one I would rather have by side. She really is my everything.

* Bought her this little devotional to usher in her tween years and hopefully start more conversations. I've already gone through it and it's so good!
