How can 7 years pass so quickly?

Grace, 7 years ago we welcomed you (our first daughter) into this world! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to be having a princess. I was so delighted I could hardly speak after your ultrasound and smiling from ear to ear in complete bliss. You far exceeded my dreams of birthing a princess by being born already having enough hair for hairbows! 
 Your big brothers, Isaac age 2 yrs and 10 months and James age 1 1/2 were delighted with you!
 Your  Daddy couldn't get enough kisses from you!
Today you are 7 years old and I have no idea where the time went!
 What will you remember from your childhood?
 How will you remember your time with me?
 I tell you, when you have a baby of your own. Don't blink, try not to become exasperated and see the beauty in your time with him/her. This time doesn't last. It passes in the blink of an eye.

 I am trying to be intentional about our time together, I don't want to have any regrets. I want you to remember that you were a delight to my heart, that I was intentional with the time that we had, that I didn't ruin it by complaining about the work you entailed, that I showed you the love of Jesus...
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. I treasure each day I have with you. You are a delight to my heart and I want you to know that. I love you so much it hurts!
