Happy 7th Birthday Gabby Girl!

Sunday, February 16, 2014 by Leslie Paladino

Tomorrow my baby girl turns 7!  At other birthdays it has seemed bitter sweet.  I wanted to hold her back and keep her from growing up too fast.  But this year I see the little lady that she’s turning into and I’m excited to watch it happen.  She is so full of life and energy and passion.  Now let’s be honest, sometimes that passion pushes my buttons like nothing else on this earth but at the same time I know that is part of what makes her special.  She’s going to be a button pusher and a game changer for the world.  She feels what she feels and NO ONE can change that.  She’s not afraid to be different.  She’s sensitive, creative and smart.  I can’t imagine what God has in store for her future and what she will become.  She already feels that God has called her to be a leader.  But what will that look like?  A leader in the church, in business, in entertainment.  Or maybe just a mommy who leads her children to Christ.  Whatever it is, I know that she will do it all the way and with flair.   To say I love this little girl is an understatement.  Happy Birthday sweet Gabby with many more to follow.
