Celebrating Chayah

 July 16th marks Chayah's 9th Birthday! I can hardly believe that she is already 9... I remember when I was 9, and I remember feeling about the same as I do now, 10 years later. She is growing up so fast, but I am so proud of her! She is amazing, beautiful, smart, and funny and I simply adore her! I don't know what I would do without my Chay Chay.. She's my girl! So today Chayah, Happy Birthday to YOU!


 This year I wasn't able to be home to celebrate with my Chayah. I was a few states away instead. And even though I did get to celebrate with her a few days early, I still missed getting to see the birthday girl on the big day. Chrissy and I did manage to take the annual birthday photo shoot of our girl still though, just a few days early instead... and wow!! My NINE year old is absolutely stunning and her beauty definitely shines through her pictures.


 Not only is my Chayah beautiful on the outside though, but she is beautiful on the inside! Chayah is incredibly sweet, caring, and thoughtful, and she loves (and I mean loves) to help in any way she ever can! Chayah, I love that about you and am so proud of you for your willingness to always put others first!


I am continually amazed by you, Chayah, and I am so blessed to have you in my life!

Everyone who meets you instantly loves you! 
And I have no doubt that each person you meet is blessed by knowing you!

Your smile, your laughter, and your joy is contagious! I know that God has some big plans for your life, Chay, and I can't wait to see them continue to unfold!

 You, my Chayah, are an incredible blessing to me and to our family. We all love you!!

I am so happy that for this third year, you are HOME celebrating your birthday. For the first six years of your life, I know you didn't get to have a birthday. So, just like you told me, this is really your "third birthday".. and for this "third birthday", I am so happy that we have you in our arms and that you are home with us to celebrate another year.

So today, my sweet Chayah, I hope you had a wonderful and absolutely fabulous day celebrating YOU and nine years of your life! I am so thankful that God placed you in my life! Every day as your big sister is an incredible blessing and I am so happy that God chose me to have you in my life. I love you Chay Chay!!

God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do.  
Ephesians 2:10

我 們 原 是 他 的 工 作 , 在 基 督 耶 穌 裡 造 成 的 , 為 要 叫 我 們 行 善 , 就 是 神 所 預 備 叫 我 們 行 的 。
