Happy 17th Birthday Sunshine!!!

It's my little girl's birthday today and that makes it a special day.  It's hard to believe she is 17.  That sounds so old.  And yet, surely it was just yesterday that she was born.  I remember it well.  She was our first.  She was born 7 weeks early, under 5 lbs, and required a 12 day stay in the NICU.  I can remember holding that tiny little premie, in awe of what God had placed in my hands.  A quick 17 years later and she is a beautiful young lady.

I am thankful to God for her.  For the kind heart He's given her.  For the submissive heart toward Heather and me.  For the special bond that exists between us.  God has mercifully showered our lives with a wonderful gift of a bright ray of Sunshine.  We are very blessed!

Here are a lot of random pics.  It's hard to narrow it down to a few.  They all bring a smile to my face. 

I love you Sunshine.  You'll always be my little girl.  Happy Birthday!
