Today’s source of gratitude was easy.
… it’s the only year where her age, her birth date and the year will all coincide.
She’s studying in Romania so I had to get creative gift-wise…
Happy Birthday Soph!
Since she’s in Romania… there was no chance to make a cake or throw a party (though that may be in the works for July when she gets back), so I had to don my thinking cap…
Last week, for Dominic’s birthday, he had friends over and we put together a few pics of when he was small. This meant that I’d spent some time going through the over 35K pictures on my computer (14K on my phone – scary!).
Of course there were pics of Timo & Soph as well… so that gave me an idea.
Yesterday at different times of the day, I sent Soph batches of pictures from the past. Some from when she was a baby, others where she & her brothers were cuddling baby rabbits in the backyard at 1 Pugsley Ave., and all kinds in between.
It was a way spontaneous and unique way to mark the day… Reminding her of great moments that God had given her throughout her life… and being reminded as well.
An adventurous, chicken-loving, curious & God-loving girl!
