She is my Sunshine
I registered my beautiful daughter for Kindergarten this week. Where has the time gone??? I remember bringing her home from the hospital just yesterday! Has it really been almost 5 years? She was so excited when I picked her up from her pre-k class and told her that I had gone to her new school to turn in all her kindergarten paperwork. She lit up when I handed her a paper bag full of goodies...a new pencil with a pink eraser on top, a pair of safety scissors, a bookmark and crayons of course. I told her there was a special workbook, too, full of activities that she can do. She beamed, and I wanted to cry. How can something so soft and tiny and precious grow so quickly into a sunny, funny girl? As I choke back tears, she spreads her wings...standing on the brink of her childhood, gazing brightly into a world full of possibilities. I can't help but think how quickly it is passing by. She is my sunshine, a blessing from above, and I love watching her grow.
