When I show up for a birthday party two weeks early, she sweetly says...
"Well, Momma....at least your early."
If she is in charge of breakfast and the other kids are not downstairs yet, she sets the table with love notes at each place.
When she heard a child use a horribly foul curse word this weekend at Chick-Fil-A, she cried for 15 minutes.
If I tell her to take this stack of papers and place it in the drawer next to the computer, she carries it upstairs and puts it on my bathroom cabinet.
Her brain = My brain
She loves to organize, move things around, and decorate which has proved mighty useful these last few months as we have done A LOT of that.
She is beyond offended by the sight of a bra strap, a short skirt, or a bare midriff.
"Pu-leez, cover that up."
She loves beautiful Christian hymns and praise songs but at the same time she can't resist Hank Williams Jr's, "Country Boy Can Survive". It is a sight to behold.
(we mute the bad word)
She is my most strong-willed child (at this point) which has brought me to my knees in desperation, many times. Now that her strong-will bends in the direction towards obedience to the Lord, I am on my knees in gratitude.
I am so grateful to spend the next formidable years of her life teaching, leading and watching her grow into a Godly young lady.
I love you sweet Hannah....
