Amazing Grace

Tomorrow is Grace's 7th birthday and just typing that makes me tear up.  Where has the time gone?  I distinctly remember the day she was born and how our lives changed in such a new and wonderful manner.  I remember her delicious babyness and how good it felt to hold her for hours on end.  I remember staring at her in complete awe that we created this perfect little person.  I remember thanking God that she was ours.  Frankly, I think that Grace is amazing.  It is such a joy to be her Mom and get to watch her grow and stretch herself.  

Here are the top ten things that I think make Grace amazing... 

1.  She loves nature and the outdoors
2.  She believes in magic
3.  She loves her brother and calls him her best friend
4.  Her favorite food is butternut squash risotto (she will try any food - she just doesn't care for zucchini or red peppers)
5.  She says prayers every night for her family, grandparents, cousins  and a boy she has never met but heard has cancer
6.  She's really creative
7.  She made a "to do" list the other morning
8.  She gets really enthusiastic and excited about things
9.  She doesn't yet care what others think of her, she still very much does her own thing
10.  She loves to read and sleep

I could go on and on...
