Happy (Belated) Birthday, Keanna!

Buttercup, you're four years old. As your aunties say, four going on sixteen.

It's true -- you've been affectionately referred to as "the boss" since you were two. You love everything to be clean and orderly. You like to make sure that all the shoes are lined up and all the sippy cups are in the hands of the proper owners.

But over the last several months, over all your Type A personality has emerged even more strongly, love, kindness, warmth and sweetness. You're quick to give a hug, show compassion and concern for those who are hurting, and cuddle up quietly with those you love.

Even when, as we put off, again, our formal celebration of your birthday due to you being sick and your little sister also falling sick, you've expressed much more concern about Talia being miserable than you have about you being sick or your birthday plans being changed.

We're so thankful for you, KeannaGirl. You are a gift from God and an expression of the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. We love you so much and we pray that God will bless you and keep you and show you His irresistible love all the days of your life.

Happy, happy birthday, SweetGirl!
