Shellie is 21.
I can still see her standing in her little yellow boots wearing that shy little smile.
She's been student teaching this semester at Joliet Central. Teaching math. Never saw that one coming. I knew she would teach, but math? Where'd that come from? Certainly neither parent!
Time for a Birthday Top Ten List--
Tea Cup Pig. Say it Shell, please?
How many dads/pastors get to be led into God's presence through the voice of their little girl?
Your creative flair has really matured. Your works of crafting art are real masterpieces, and bring us great joy.
You're holding out for the right guy. He'll come.
Who knows, you may even already know him! No matter what, God made him just for you. It is also fine by me if he waits a decade to show up.
I wish I had your discipline, your drive, your determination, your persistence. I can only imagine what my life might have been if God gave me your tenacity.
You're going to be a great mom! I can't wait to meet your kids. No rush. Husband first.
Thanks for being patient with me. Projects don't always get finished as fast as I know you would like. BTW...The mirror looks great!
Can't wait to share this year's Christmas present with you! Thanks again. Great idea!
Tea Cup Pig. Say it again, please?
When I had a son, I became a dad. When I had a daughter, I became a man. Thanks for making me the man I am!
I love you sweet baby...
