Today is the birthday of two very special girls in my life -
Both of them brought to me because of one man's love.
The first is his wife of 8 years.
She was Josh's dream for a wife.
And my dream for a daughter-in-law.
Neither of us have been disappointed!
I love you, Jodi.
I couldn't have done any better had I picked you myself.
I love how you love my son
and your children.
How respectful you are of other people.
And the goodness and sweetness that is your heart.
And then there is Lily!
The only girl in a sea of boys.
And every bit the princess.
I loved you from the moment I knew there was a you.
Enough gentleness to call you girlie
and yet enough toughness to hold your own
with four brothers.
