Pearl is 5. How did that happen?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Gwen Resmer Patchett @ 9:18 pm

As I sit and watch my kids sleep I am in disbelief that Pearl turns 5 tomorrow.  While some days feel about a year long, I find it shocking that she is 5 already.

Pearl, you and I are a lot alike which leads to some special bonding but also a lot of head butting.  You challenge me constantly and although I try to rise to the occasion there are many times that I fail and instead of nurturing your strong will I am overcome by frustration.   I am sorry for all the times I have yelled when I should have hugged, for all the times I chose chores over quality time with you and for all the times I walked away when you just wanted to be close to me.

I love you so much and I am proud of the person you are and will be.  You make me smile and you make me cry and I wouldn’t change you if I could.  You are a special little girl that makes the world a brighter place.

Happy Birthday Kiddo.  I know you are so happy to be turning 5 and I hope it is all that you hope it will be.
