Five Minute Friday: Change

 Her sweetness, the way she giggles, her dreams, even the way she can be so stubborn -
I wouldn't change a thing!
This little girl of mine is not so little anymore; she is in 7th grade now and 

I'm watching her change right before my eyes. 
I can't wrap my hands around how much it feels as if she grew up overnight.
This girl of mine; she's a lot like a girl I used to know---

she's a lot like me. 
She is in a hurry to grow up- wants to feel accepted- 
wants her opinions to be valued- and she can't wait til she's 18!
She can't wait to go to UCLA, and move out in her own apartment with her BFF,
and is already planning how it will be decorated!
This girl has taught me a lot about life; to accept others no matter who they are,

to value only Gods opinion of me, to slow down and live my life giving myself to 
my family; with their best interest in my heart.
Most of all that change is okay; change is growth!
Thank you God for her!
