Happy 8th Birthday My Bird-Talking Superstar

Today is Zoe’s Birthday. I can’t believe she’s going to be eight. These past few years have just flown by. I know that happens with all parents, but with what we’ve been through, it almost feels I’ve missed a year or two.

Third Birthday (and no, she’s not wearing makeup):

I feel so blessed to still be here. To still be able to be part of Zoe’s life. When I think of what I’ve been through, I can’t believe I’m here sometime.

But Zoe is the reason. She was theĀ Keeper of my Hope. She still amazes me at age 8 as she has from day one.

She makes me laugh and she gives me hope – watching her read, playing with her friends, doing something kind for me or my parents, listening to her pray, watching her work at volunteering events, watching her play sports and simply watching her. She’s a funny kid. I’m so proud to be her mother.

I really think this will be a great year for us. It feels like a very special year.

I can do this. I have Zoe.

Your assignment is to send Z some fun birthday wishes. She loves to read them.


Besides, how can you not love a beautiful home-chick like this?
