Well, it's birthday time again for our sweet Bethany. In this case I have to say, finally! With her two sister having birthdays within two weeks of each other in the spring, it is a long wait for a November birthday. But here we finally are and once again I am amazed and overwhelmed at how fast time is flying, and how gracious God is.
Bethany is as unique as they come. I am constantly amazed at how I can have three little girls so close together, and yet as different from each other as they can be. I always struggle to accurately describe Bethany. She is completely hilarious, and yet not in a comedian like way. The way she talks has always been very articulate which makes just about everything that comes out of her mouth sound so funny. Bethany makes friends everywhere she goes. Not little people generally, but adults. Bethany will carry on a conversation with anyone who cares to pass the time of day with her. She loves her sisters deeply and while she may be very keen on going on a date with Mommy or Daddy, she misses them terribly the whole time. She lately has been choosing to be very self-sacrificing and unselfish, especially towards her sisters. She is either gloomy as a rain cloud or happy as a lark. Thankfully there are many more happy times then gloomy ones.
Just thinking of my dear girl brings a smile to my face. From day one she has been different than I ever would have guessed.I'm so thankful for how masterfully she has been created and for the many plan that are yet to be carried out in her life.
These are just a few random pictures from the last year.
