Our baby girl, Marika, turns 13!! I remember one of my cousins telling me that one of the only reasons you start to feel older is the age of your children! Yep, I believe it! A teenager - I still can't believe that! =)
I love the beautiful young lady this girly is turning out to be! She is a loving, responsible, creative, friendly, thoughtful and helpful person. I love the change our conversations have taken over the last year and a bit, as she's matured and some of her interests have changed. Not that I didn't love them before, but it's a neat difference as she's gotten a little older!
Dear Marika, Daddy and Mommy love you so much, and we are so proud of you! We continue to pray for you and the direction the Lord will take you in life. You are a sweet, lovely young lady, and I'm so thankful the Lord blessed us with you!
Happy 13th Birthday!!
