Happy Birthday Lucy

Oh sweet Lucy...


you are turning 7? years old...


on a day that you picked cause...


you wanted a pool party.


Oh my darling...


even though we still don't know how old you are...


or what your true birthday is...


it does not matter today...


because today, we celebrate that you have a birthday...


that you are here...


that you are full of compassion and love...


that you are giving and caring and...


determined and inspiring.

This year you had both feet and both calves reconstructed...


spent 9 weeks in casts and a wheelchair...


learned how to walk again...


and run...

and through it all, never lost your compassion for others!


I saw where you came from...


where you spent so many years of your young life...


I have heard the stories...


and I marvel at how the Lord protected your spirit, your beautiful, caring, compassionate spirit.


I watch as you struggle just to get up out of a chair and walk across a waiting room, to give another child a book to read.

I watch as you give away most of your candy to your siblings.

I watch as you pray for your friends who are still in China.

 I watch as you give and share and laugh and love...


and I know that His army of angels was watching over you long before I got to watch you do any of those things!

Happy Birthday precious Lucy...


you love well and are well loved my sweet one!
