Today is a very special day. It is Michala’s 16th birthday! SIXTEEN! I can’t believe my sweet girl is sixteen-years-old now. Seriously, slow down time. Elijah turns 18 next month and Zephaniah is almost crawling. Being a parent is such a joy and makes you a little sad at the same time because it’s hard sometimes to watch your children grow up. You just want them to stay small a bit longer.
I am very happy, though, that Michala is 16 now. She is really excited to be 16. We have a special family dinner planned for her this evening. We’re cooking her favorite homemade Chinese food and egg rolls. My mom and sister sent her gifts, and I’m taking Michala to go get a few books that she’s wanting to buy. This weekend we’re also going to celebrate her 16th birthday in Detroit.
Sixteen years ago God blessed me with my beautiful Michala and I am so very thankful to be her mom. She has made me a better person. Michala and I have a very close relationship. We enjoy watching drama shows together and listening to K-Pop. She is my shopping buddy and she always makes me laugh. I am so proud of the woman she is becoming and I feel incredibly blessed to be her mom.
Happy Sweet 16, Michala! I love you to the moon and back! xoxo
