To Ella Mae on her 5th Birfday!

I cannot BELIEVE this little mess pot is already FIVE! Five!?! Wow. It truly seems like only yesterday that she came into this world under many tumultuous circumstances. There were tornadoes in Alabama that bad that we had to be wheeled out in the hallway shortly after she was born. I should have taken that as a sign of things to come. My gallbladder tried to explode. Well my whole digestive system was very unhappy due to her residence amidst my internal organs. Did I mention the whole divorce part? And the fact that I had a 2 1/2 year old AND had just moved with my parents into a new house a few short weeks earlier? Yeah. MANY tumultuous circumstances.

However, I knew then....... and I still know now, that God has a great big plan for this little girl. I couldn't imagine her being one bit different than who she is and I know that the things about her that make me crazy at times are the same things that will make her a strong woman some day.

So, to my sweet princess loving, lipstick wearing, bug and animal loving, always dirty, rarely fully clothed, stubbornest woman I know, smarter than she should be, crazy booty dancing, tender but tough as nails little mess pot.......HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY!
