We now have 3 teenagers...wow seems crazy. Anna had her birthday a little while ago, Nov. 27th but ummm oops I did not post about it yet. So, yes it's another belated note but...it's written with lots of love just the same.
Anna has been the perfect 1st born daughter to me! I can't imagine having to raise these kids without her... :) Really, she is a huge help. She is such a sweet girl. She loves to serve others and is so kind and gentle. Her love for purity, the Lord, honor for her daddy, and her desire to serve Jesus with her whole heart is outstanding!!! The older she gets the sweeter she is, and her faith is truly her own. It's humbling to have her as my daughter, I am blessed. She has been so diligent in her studies this year in school, I am so proud of her! She will be an amazing wife and mother someday...my only issue is that "someday" seems to be coming faster and faster, time is flying. Ha.
Mercy (my niece) had her birthday the same day as Anna.
Anyway, about Mercy!!! What a girl. It has been so wonderful teaching her at AGK school co-op this year and getting to know her even better. She is a sweetheart. She loves to help with Jeb, which is nice. She can talk faster then anyone in the world and still understandable. :) I love her tons. She does have the gift of Mercy with others, caring of others. She loves her Father in Heaven so much. She's outgoing and friendly to new people and she can make anyone feel at home and comfortable. It's a blast to watch her interact with poeple.
O.K. Esther (my niece) had her birthday on the 13th of this month, December. Late again I know. Esther and I have a special bond...it's awesome. She is so fun to be around, she's getting older fast but that's ok, she will always be my little Esther Pumpkin head, blueberry girl! (Inside joke) She is so much like her mom and yet so much like her dad...oh the best of two wonderful people. Smart, funny, serious and very quick witted. I am really excited about her voice! She can sing so beautifully!!! It has been amazing to see her talent in singing. She is very dear to me. She just needs to write and sing a song about me! HA HA
