Haleigh is 23 today.
This picture is me and her 22.5 years ago when she was a little over 6 months old. I was a baby... only 21 years old when this picture was taken.
It's crazy to think that this tiny little girl has grown up into a beautiful young woman of God. At this age, she was bouncing and moving to her dad's guitar playing. Now, she sings on stage beautifully.
The past 23 years have gone by so quickly. The toddler years... the adolescent years... the pre-teen years... the teenage years...junior high... high school... college... and now, a working woman on her own building a life and a future. It makes me quite emotional to think of how God has blessed her in her life in this world thus far.
Happy birthday Haleigh. Have fun tonight at your favorite steak house... have fun with your friends celebrating life in your 20's. I love you. You are beautiful.
P.S. I didn't send your gift yet. Thought it would be appropriate to let you down easy... you know, after I said all those nice things. ;) It's on it's way though... and you're going to love it!
