May God who loves you and fills your life with joy, be with you always.
Sparkles turned 10 on May 18. We were away on pilgrimage so her party had to wait.
We offer the kids a birthday party with friends, every other year. This is what works for us. It also helps our kids keep things in perspective.
Six of her eleven invited friends were able to attend.
Sweetie was a guest and Rose was the party helper.
The girls bowled, participated in contests, had pizza and cake, enjoyed presents, and wrapped it up with a few arcade games. We pretty much had the whole bowling place to ourselves. It was a blessed celebration!
Loving God, you created all the people of the world and you know each of us by name. We thank you for Sparkles, who today celebrates her birthday. Bless her with your love and friendship that she may grow in wisdom, knowledge, and grace. May she love her family always and be faithful to her friends.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
