Oh my precious Hannah! I cannot believe you are 17 years old today. Where has the time gone? I love you more and more everyday. I am so honored that God chose me to be your mom.
I just want you to know how important you are in my life. You are a soft cool rain on a hot summer's day. You make me laugh with the funny things you say. You are the beat of my heart and the air that I breathe. You are the sun and the wind, and autumn's golden leaves.
You are the pride that I feel when I now you've done what is right. You are that warm feeling I get, when I think back to the times I've tucked you in at night. You have a beautiful smile that can light the darkest night.
As I watch you grow I have such mixed emotions. I pray the man that steals your heart will treat you like a queen. I will always cherish the wonderful times we have had. I look forward toward the future times we will share. I love you more than you will ever know. Keep your eyes focused on God and He will direct your path. Happy Birthday my sweet Hannah Bear!!
