HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENNEDY!!!!


My beautiful little princess,
Today you turn 4 years old. Amazing. In your birthday letter last year, I promised you that this year you would be celebrating your birthday cancer free. By the grace of God, here we are! This past year has been like no other. You have shown me over and over just how strong you are. You inspire me every single day. And I am SO blessed to be your Mommy.

Kennedy, I wish you were aware of all of the lives you touch, all the hearts you melt. Just know that there are many, maybe hundreds, of people who love you without even knowing you. And those who DO know you, love you even more. And I'm so proud to be called your Mommy.

So now we embark on a new year of your life, and like last year we face medical unknowns. I know that you will take it all in with a smile, with strength that can only come from God, and next year we will celebrate your 5th birthday cancer free... and halo free. And I'll be in awe that I am your Mommy.

Happy Birthday Kennedy! I am praying that 4 will be your best year yet! I am excited to see the new things you will do, hear the new words you will say, and rejoice in all your successes with you. I love you SO much. And I thank God every day that I get to be your Mommy.

All my love,
Mommy

A very belated happy birthday - I've been reading about Kennedy for about a year and am constantly amazed at your entire family! Renee you are truly an inspiration to Christian mothers. Congrats again on winning the military mom award - you are SO deserving!

I love that pic of Kennedy - and that frame around it makes it perfect! Not only do you blog, you do it with style!
