Today Alycia turns 9! I still see her as about 6, but no, time has moved on. I decided not to buy her toys because she is notorious for leaving things on the floor, so she chose a new doona cover set. I was pretty happy with that, especially as it was 40% off at Adairs Kids (a place I don’t even go into normally). She also recieved her first adult Bible! She choose a black NKJ, so now all she has to do is read it! Alycia is a little treasure, a little insecure though. I recently had a talk to her about “feeling” loved. For some people they always have a feeling of being unloved, so it is important that she remembers that besides us loving her, she has a heavenly Father who loves her, and has proved that,by the sacrifice of His Son. We met up with mum and my sister Nicky to have lunch, and then we went out for tea, taking Ellie with us too. Look at the size of this gelati!
