Fifteen Going On Fifteen!

My eldest daughter just turned 15 years old this past weekend!

I know this sounds so cliche, but she is turning out to be a wonderful young lady!

Not only is she gorgeous, but she is smart, witty, fun, independent, super outgoing, athletic, confident, talkative, and yet very humble.

I love that even though she has a boyfriend, she still is the same. She doesn't have to change, or even feel like she has to change for him. Or for anyone, for that matter.

She won't hesitate to speak the truth, or even tell it how it is. Definitely not a wallflower, or pushover.

I love that about her!

More importantly, she takes her walk with the Lord seriously (as well as her purity).

I wish I knew the Lord at a young age.

For her birthday, my sis in-law decided to give her a purity ring.

I love how it represents what she believes in. It says "LOVE WAITS" on the band, and she is definitely waiting until marriage for that "moment." It's not just a promise to herself, but to the Lord. We're so blessed that her and her boyfriend have the same faith and ideals for their courtship/relationship.

She is such a treasure to us!

That is absolutely wonderful! I'm so glad she's got a great relationship with the Lord. If I was close to Him when I was her age, TRUST, I would have saved myself a lot of embarrassment and heartache! If you know what I mean! ;) SAVE IT, GIRL! SAVE. IT! Lol!
