To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Nine Things to Know About Abby

9.) She's a funny girl. If she's really tickled about something when she's talking to you she sort of sounds like the Hamburgler. (A bunch of you will probably have to google hamburgler now.)
# 4
8.) When she was not even walking yet she could stare me down...she'd get this look on her face and I would just break into laughter.
7.) She's a chatter box. She just chats about anything and everything.

6.) She has big feet and it doesn't bother her at all. Especially if she's allowed to keep her toenails painted.
5.)  She's really good at math.
Not A Balance Queen
4.) She's our girly girl and if it sparkles and shines she loves it.
3.) She loves being a helper.

2.) She is my best breakfast eater.
1.) Today is her 9th birthday!
Happy happy birthday sweet Abby! Your story has always been one of joy and happiness...may God continue to grow you up to be a woman who delights in His way.
