Happy Birthday, Molly!

Love-bug, I am amazed that you are 5 years old! It seems like just yesterday you were born. I can remember the first time I held you and nursed you. Your sweet little cry and your content spirit. Now, you are rambunctious and have to feel everything. You love your sisters more than you'd ever consider acknowledging.
Molly Grace, you have amazing gifts. You have such great generosity--you even let me borrow $2 at the grocery store, so I didn't have to write a check or use my card. You are a passionate dancer, I love watching you twirl in the kitchen and living room in pure worship. You are funny, you always make me laugh. I am so grateful that the Lord chose us to care for you. You are hospitable and gracious...
You are quick to forgive and the first to suggest prayer in times of trouble. You call me to a higher level of holiness, I see Jesus in you and want to do better and lead you in righteousness. You are very creative, the way you re-hung all those pictures in my bedroom when I got home from the hospital touched my heart...there were more than 50 pieces of construction paper covered with prayers and art--you made my room like a prayer garden. You all ways go the extra mile to show love!
You love Emma, Julianna and'd rather be with them than with others, even though they get on your nerves. You are a great friend, too.
I love you and pray that I can help you to love the Lord more in the coming year, though it seems to work the other way around...I will still do my best and try.
I love you with all my heart!
Mommy (to be said in a high-pitched, squeally voice)
