My oldest daughter turns 18 years old today! I can hardly believe it. I found myself crying tears of joy, gratitude, nostalgia, and sadness all mingled together. What a privilege to witness the growth of a child to adulthood! I took some time to wallow, but then I turned the page to think of her next 18 years. I’m looking forward. I’m praying blessing and protection. I’m praying for a clear, bright path ahead. I’m praying for unimaginable blessing. Oh, I cannot wait!
