I have four children. Three boys and one girl. I love, love, love my boys. They are the most gentle young men who treat me so well. But I must add that I am so thankful God saw fit to bless me with a girl too.
She adds so much engergy to our life at home. When she is around there is laughter...loud laughter. She dances and sings...with intermittent laughter...all around the house. She is so full of joy.
But there is another side to her, which I think has been developed by having brothers. She is competitive. VERY competitive. She is tough and doesn't like to lose...ever. She can stick with something, pushing through pain, to meet her goals. I am so impressed by her, at times.
My daughter still likes to talk with me, go shop with me, and give me the occasional hug. She is a good girl, full of compassion and kindness. She is God's child and is turning into such a beautiful woman, mirroring the One who holds her in the palm of His hand.
