Seven years ago I became a mother.
Elisha, I’ve loved having you as my first born.
You are a treasure and a delight.
It has been amazing to watch you grow in every way.
From a little baby, to the big boy that you are now.
From knowing nothing, to voraciously reading books, and soaking up all sorts of information.
From crying as your only form of communication to having long conversations on your favourite topics.
From knowing nothing about our Father in heaven, to knowing more about him, and caring about others knowing him.
From being the only child to having two younger siblings.
This year you did not have a party with friends from school.
But we did have a very fun day.
We went to Ikea for breakfast.
And then on to Aqwa.
And last but not least, home for an afternoon tea.
Different people came and joined in at all the locations of your travelling birthday. It was really, very fun, and no stress. We’ll have to do something like that again.
