Well today is the day, the day that marks the 23rd anniversary of the day I gave birth to the most amazing daughter a mother could ever ask for. I want to tell you all a little bit about Elizabeth Anne, see before she was born I prayed for her, I was specific in my prayer about the kind of daughter I wanted. I asked God for a daughter who was strong, independent, funny, intelligent, articulate and beautiful. Well, ask and ye shall receive, I did receive that and more, not only did God give me such a daughter, he gave me her during my birthday month and he brought ice and snow along with her. The minute I laid eyes on her I knew that my prayers were answered, she came out not crying, but alert and already taking in the world around her.
I knew in my mind the way she should look, long dark hair and big dark eyes, well, I got that as well. Elizabeth is an amazing person; never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that God would have answered my prayers so specifically.
Let me tell you a little about my daughter, on this day, her birthday, she simply rocks. She owns her own farm and has cattle. Not only does she have these cattle, she works with them, they know her, they obey her. She is a tiny little thing, yet these enormous beasts do whatever she wants them to do. She has a real heart for animals, they all seem to love her, and she takes in strays and finds homes for them. I think they all sense in her that she will not harm them and will nurse them back to health and find them a good loving home. Did I mention she holds down a job as well? She has done very well in her job, taking a class and passing a difficult test to move up. She works hard at everything she does, I have no words to express how proud of her I am.
She is personality plus, she has a unique way of looking at the world, she sees people for who they are and can tell you in a matter of moments whether or not she likes that person. I think she gets that from me. I have to take some credit here.
I could not ask for a more perfect daughter, as I already asked for her and got her, God was truly listening to not only my words when he formed her, but my heart.
Happy Birthday Elizabeth, please know that you are everything I ever wanted in a daughter and more, you are beautiful, smart, funny and amazing, I hope your special day is as amazing as you are.
I love you,
