To our happy twirly five year old! You are five already? How did that happen so fast? But that's a good thing because it's a happy thing for us to see you growing and learning. And it's also so nice to see you still being such a helper to your mommy. Now that you're older, you can REALLY help her a lot--and you do! And sometimes you like to help me too and I'm sure you're a helper with other people when you get a chance. So God gave you a helper's heart, and we're very thankful to see that in you. And guess what, Shana? You are right in the middle of your sisters. That means you can learn things from Selena, and it also means you can teach Gracie things. Now that is pretty special that you get to do both!
You already know that PopPop and I love you SO MUCH. And you and Nanna like to hang out together, don't we? We like to eat good things together and hold hands. And you're still not too big to sit on my lap! You even said so the other day. :) Now, what makes your daddy and mommy and all the rest of us the happiest is that you want to love and please God. We will pray that all your life that will be what you want most. We'll keep praying that Jesus will be very precious to you and have first place in your heart.
We love you! Happy Birthday, Sweetie.
Nanna (and PopPop)
