Thankful Thursday

|



Oh, how I love this girl! She is my baby... my Abby. As I am typing this post on Wednesday evening, we have just wrapped up our day of celebrating her 4th birthday! Four years ago today at about 8:35am Abby was born into our family. And what a blessed 4 years it has been!


Abby is just the perfect combination of "girlie girl" and tomboy. She can be playing in the mud with her older brother and 15 minutes later she'll be "oohing" and "ahhing" over a new pink dress. One minute she is quite and soft-spoken and the next she is running around the house growling like a lion (her favorite animal). She loves to play pretend. She always wants to help... she thinks it's great fun to climb up on a step stool and help me cook dinner, she's always ready to help with laundry by moving clothes from the washer to the dryer, and she is right alongside me when I'm running run the vacuum cleaner. She is a bundle of energy and so much fun!

Thank you, Lord, for my sweet Abby!

Aww what a sweet girl you have. I just want to say thank for the prayers and thought as we are going through a rough time.I prayer that one day I can experience parenthood as well.

Sandy said...

Very sweet! You daughter sounds like my daughter, tom-boy, yet girle....I like that combo also.
Isn't it funny how their birthdays always touch mom's heart also. I always reflect on the day they were born on their birthdays.

She is a gift from God. :)

Tiffanie said...

Happy (belated) Birthday to Abby. What a great post honoring her, and the Lord.

And what an awesome little helper! My two year old likes to "help out", but turning four seemed to be the end of "helping mommy is fun" for both of the older boys.

Tiffany Stuart said...

Loved seeing a picture of your girl.

Have a wonderful weekend, Melanie. Good to peek in on you tonight.
