childhood // happy birthday dandelion

"The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that He, in His goodness, sends to us day after day."

-St. Gianna Beretta Molla

Dear sweetest daughter,

In many small but incredible ways, precious Dandelion, you have helped our little family live out this very happiness that St. Gianna mentioned years ago. From the moment you were conceived, to your very eventful birthday, to today and everything in between, your ability for joy, happiness, smiles, and laughter continue to move our little souls to all that is true, good, and beautiful in a way that only you can. 

From the bottom of your mama's heart and the hearts of your family and friends, thank you, little love. We truly are forever grateful.

Now onto a trip down Dandelion lane on your birthday.

It's an honor to be your mother. My prayers and love are always with you. Know that I am incrediby thrilled at the gift that it is to see you continue to grow into the woman God made you to be.

May God bless and keep you always, may our dear Mother continually hold you in her mantel of prayers, and may her mother, St. Anne always hear the prayers of your heart and bring them faithfully to Our Lord. XOXOXO
