Happy 6th Birthday Sugar Pie!!

Look Who's 6!!

I love this one, she has the cutest smile when she's laughing over mommy tripping out of the photographers way. :o)

Such a blessing to our lives. We love you Sugar Pie! Her party is tomorrow so there will be party pictures to follow this post. Last night I was up until 1:30 making her a special surprise cake for her kindergarten class. At lunch time today it was delivered and it totally caught her off guard but she was sooooo excited! She loved it and she felt extra special!

The kids went nuts trying to catch and burst the bubbles!!! This was such a fun cake to make!!!!!!! Tomorrow at her birthday party they are all making their own cake and I just ordered a cupcake cake for everyone to share...it's The Little Mermaid too!!





It's my child's birthday
Shee just went dashing by
Her eyes are sparkling with the excitement meant only for today.
Presents, kisses, hugs, cake, ice cream
It all seems so natural.
It's a day of looking back and looking forward.

It's my child's birthday
But there is something different happening inside me.
This should be a day of complete joy
A day for Thanksgiving
But in the midst of all this excitement
I pause, because my thoughts are about someone else for a time.

It's my child's birthday
I have no memories of her life growing inside me and fighting to be
released.
Another someone was there
Another someone suffered for my joy.

It's my child's birthday
But someone, somewhere, is feeling emptiness inside.
I'm sure she is wondering
Who she looks like
If she is big or small.
Wondering if she laughs much.

It's my child's birthday
And in the midst of this blessed day that was given to me
I have a prayer.

Oh God, that I may never forget that someone suffered so much to give life
to my child.
That someone loved my child so very much that she gave her the right to
live. May I never
forget for a moment and especially now, today, to offer a prayer of thanks
for that someone
and that you, dear God, will always be there for that someone to help her
through the hurts
she will have when she stops to think that today is "my child's birthday."
