Let me tell you about Ava. If I was eight, I'd want to have Ava as a friend. She's smart, funny, full of energy and creativity, and loves to smile and laugh. But more importantly, she cares about others' feelings and is one of the nicest girls I know. She is sensitive, thoughtful, and kind. She is going to get her feelings hurt more often than she hurts the feelings of others throughout life, but I think I prefer that to the reverse. She brightens a room when she walks in. She is a good big sister. She has too many hopes and dreams for life to even begin to list. She is graceful and gentle. She could write or read all day long. Every year I capture more of a glimpse of the woman she is becoming and am never disappointed. I am thankful for her every day. Happy 8th birthday sweet girl!

Ava is a beautiful girl inside and out. And when she reads this now or when she's older, it is going to mean the world to her that her mom so obviously adores her and is proud of her!
