Today, she got to go spend her Toys R Us gift card we gave her (she thought it was a credit card :)) She chose a Ipod Nano.......who knew a 5 year old knew such things? Anyway, we went on for swimming lessons and then fun at Bridge Street. She splashed in the water fountains and rode the carousel before we met my Mom for a special birthday lunch. Abby was determined that someone at a restaurant needed to sing to her. She is such a ham! She LOVED the attention! We ended today with a family supper with her grandparents and great-grandparents. It was so sweet to see that she was just as excited, if not more, to have her "family" party as she was with her friends on Saturday.
I'm trying not to think about it too much......Kindergarten is just around the corner - YIKES! How thankful I have always been for Abby, but even more so now! It seems you never appreciate life until it is lost. Abby has been and still is the light in our world. She kept us going through days we didn't think we could. The Lord sent words through her that we needed to hear. She was my reason to get up and face the day. She has more understanding about Heavenly things than many 5 year olds, but maybe this is an early part of her work too. We love you sweet and sassy Abby!
