I Woke Up This Morning And Something Had Changed

I woke up this morning and thought to myself, “How could this be possible? How could this have happened?”

How could things change SO QUICKLY!?

How could this have happened SO FAST?

How could I not have seen this coming? Okay, I saw it coming, but I guess I was in denial it was ACTUALLY going to happen.

No matter how much my heart didn’t want this day to come, my head knows that it is a good day.

A great day.

Mahlie is 5.

That’s right- that little baby with the big blue eyes: 5.

That little chubby girl running around with dog bowls over her head. 5.

The little girl with long blond hair “like Rapunzel”. 5.

She woke up this morning, stretched out her arms and legs and said, “my arms and legs are longer now because I am 5.”

And what a beautiful, amazing 5 she is.

Happy Birthday, my beautiful Sweets.
