Now she is nine

During the week my sweet eight turned a mighty fine nine. I am a sentimental kind of girl and usually experience a kind of heaviness with each passing birthday year. In the past I have found myself looking through photo albums and sifting through carefully packed away treasures of scuffed shoes and outgrown clothes. This year is different. I feel good about this turning of age and am looking forward rather than back. This has so much to do with her.
