Twelve

This sweet girl turned twelve yesterday.

We spent her birthday in Leavenworth, as we have the last five years.

She's such a blessing to me. I am amazed at how many times lately I've found myself in a conversation with her that is much more friend to friend than mother to daughter.

Sure, she still definitely needs me to be her mom. But I see her maturing to a point where she is starting to take on the qualities of a good woman friend.

A couple of times lately, she's listened to my concerns over something and been moved to tears for me... there's an empathy there I just don't get from my boys. Or from Asia, for that matter.

I'm so glad I have her.

Happy Birthday, sweet Savannah.
