Happy birthday, Betsie Boo! You are truly a Joyful blessing and I'm so proud to be your mama.
Yes, as you said, you are no longer "sixteen going on seventeen". You are, indeed, growing up so fast...growing into an amazingly beautiful woman of God. Sometimes I am just in awe of all God is doing in your life. It is an incredible gift to be a part of your journey.
I love you so much!
