Well, that is how old my daughter will be tomorrow. I can hardly believe my baby girl is going to be 12. I can still remember caring her back and forth in the hallway to get her to go to sleep as a baby. She was a good baby for the most part and now she is growing up so fast it makes me proud and sad at the same time. I see how she is becoming more independent and wanting to spend more time with her friends than with us, her parents. I know that during these next years of her life she will have to make decisions that will change and impact her future in significant ways. What does she want to become? Where will she go to College? Who will she chose as a husband, wait a minute, I did say 12. I am not going to start thinking about these things quite yet. I know the High School years will be here before I know it and my prayer for Zana is that she always uses Godly wisdom in all her decisions and that she allows Christ love to shine through her in all of the relationships she has with her peers.
As for now, I am going to take the time to show her how special she is to me and how proud of her I am. I am going to make this birthday party that we are have for her one she will remember and treasure. I don't know how many others of you have a little girl that is turning 12 or 13.... but, I pray you also are able to enjoy these years and make them count because soon your little girl may start to spread her wings and fly and all your will be able to do is watch. Always treasure the special gift God has given you of a baby girl, I know I will.......God bless each and everyone of you and your daughters too.
