I'm Sixteen!

Yes, it's true. AND I was given the most thoughtful gift ever for it! For the last few weeks Mother Dear has been working on some "secret project"...
...which turned out to be a quilt with squares from special ladies I have known throughout my entire life. Pen pals, aunts, friends, my kindergarten teacher...


I feel so blessed! Thank you to all who took the time to contribute to it, and especially to my extremely creative and hard-working mother.

Happy Birthday! I came by from Aspiring-Homemaker. What a blessing it is to have young women who are following God, I hope that I can lead my daughters in this way - when I have them.

Happy birthday! You are so mature for a 16 year old. I would have guessed you were much older :)
