Turning 8 is a very significant time for us. It’s when we, in our church, get baptized. By doing so, we make certain promises that we strive to keep as we grow physically and spiritually. It is also when we become “officially” members of our church.
This is the year when not only my daughter but her friends and most of my friend’s children are getting baptized -Talk about a busy year ahead…-
A little while ago it was my daughter’s best friend’s turn. I love this little girl like she is my own. I get to have her often in my house and we feel so complete when she is there. On her “BIG DAY” she was glowing, her spirit touched us deeply and it continues to do so. She is one SPECIAL little girl full of talents and gifts and without a doubt I know she will go far in life. Her mother is an excellent example of courage, passion and strength in a Christ-centered life. I could not be more proud of having her in my life.
Below a few of my memories from that day.
Some of the highlights were the CTR (choose the right ) cupcakes, little sister singing her first solo to “I’m a child of God” in English and Spanish, and talking pregnancy matters with a sweet friend expecting her first baby girl.
I will share a Thanksgiving and Birthday post with you soon. In the meantime: Did you want to know about me? Go here and ask me! I heart questions.
Happy Sunday Friends!
