Sabriya's 14th Birthday

Sunday, November 18, 2012

They say that a 14th birthday is not a landmark birthday like 18 or 21--no special privileges like voting or legally consuming alcohol go along with turning 14 years old. Still, the 14th birthday, like every birthday, is worth celebrating because it means another year of life.  You are such an amazing young lady – as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside. I have watched your self-confidence explode this year and it makes me chuckle to watch you with your “swagger”. I wish I could give you all the treasures in the world and I appreciate your understanding when I can’t. I hope that the memories and traditions that we’re building as a family will be what you remember many years from now because those are what’s most important in life.

Well, although they say that turning 14 isn't a landmark birthday, we decided to make it one for you... You really only wanted ONE thing for this birthday, and you asked, and asked, and asked for months trying to get us ready for this moment.  But as your birthday dawned we didn't breath a word about your request but we knew you were waiting.  After family time with dinner, cake and presents we simply told you that we had to go somewhere, and we got in the car and drove.  I could tell you were a little sad after opening your presents and not seeing any sign of that one present you had asked for :( :( :(   That was until you saw what business we pulled up to - Professional Body Piercing in Tempe.  Your face lit up, because you knew then that your one birthday wish was going to come true.  Well, I think we did it, we made your 14th birthday a "landmark" one that I am pretty sure you will always remember.

Happy Birthday, baby – I love you to the moon and back again!
