Happy 6th Birthday Madelyn!!

Today is a special day for my amazing niece Madelyn! She not only started the 1st grade, but it is her 6th birthday! Mady is so special to me and I love her so so so so much. Mady is a smart little girl that loves to be a big helper and she absolutely loves to play and be crazy. She is a shy and sensitive child and her heart breaks if you look at her the wrong way.

I am so thankful for all of the time that I get to spend with her (as crazy as she can be). One of her favorite things to do is spend the night at Yaya's (me) house. She is obsessed with helping me cook and wants me to play with her the entire time that I am with her. My sister and brother in law are currently building 800 feet back in the woods from where my house is. I am so looking forward to having Mady and Savannah close to me now so that I can see them even more.

I pray for Mady every day that God will protect her not only physically, but spiritually and emotionally as well. The world is a tough place to grow up in now days and kids tend to grow up a little faster. I don't think that family can do enough to make kids know that they are their number 1 fans and that they are loved.

I included a picture below from Mady's first birthday party. It's crazy how much that she has grown up and how much has happened since she was born. I see my Memaw's arm in the picture beside her and I know that she would be so in love with Mady and Savannah if she was still living.

Happy Birthday Madelyn!!! I love you!
