Happy Birthday Reese!
5 years ago our lives were forever changed by this tiny bundle. What an awesome journey parenthood has been thus far...and we've only just begun. We love you Reese!
You never cease to amaze me with your kind hearted spirit. And today was no exception. It was your 5th birthday, you were sick with a sore throat and couldn't go to your beloved preschool where they were going to celebrate your special day. We were stuck inside all day watching the pouring rain out our window. And we were debating whether or not to let you go sing in your first choir performance in front of big church tonight.
You were excited about your presents we let you open. So I reminded you that you would get to open even more this weekend at your Family Party. You were happy about that. Then, instead of focusing on the crummy parts of your day--being sick, the rain, etc, you said, "But Mommy...my greatest gift of all is from Jesus."
