To My Four Year Old Girl

Ivy Pearl, you are four today.

I can't believe it! Four years old!!! Oh, how you've grown.

You are a dreamer. And a rule follower.

It's a fascinating combination.

You love dancing and fairies and cupcakes. You are also sure to never have too much screen time, or eat too much sugar, or go anywhere near an electrical outlet.

You are my sidekick. The best little sister and the sweetest big sister.

When you grow up, you want to be a pharmacist.

And a mermaid.

I pray for you, darling girl. And when I pray for you, I also pray for me. That I might be more sure of who I am, so in turn you will see it, and know who you are...a beautiful daughter of God. 

This world can be scary, but oh, Sweetness, there is so much beauty around you. Find it!

Happiest Birthday, Pearlie. You are so very loved.
