Our 7-year-old

callie-7

Callie turned 7 years old today. Zaxby’s was her choice for dinner, followed by a strawberry cake with a snowman on top.

We’re glad to have reached this milestone. With each birthday comes an awareness that it could be her last. We feel that very acutely this year. We’ve seen some recent changes in Callie’s overall strength and fatigue levels, and her last illness was the most severe we’ve seen in years.

We’re so grateful for the time we’ve been given, and we’re proud of her determination, spunk and kindness.

Happy Birthday to our one and only girl-baby.

    Callie, my favorite place to eat is Zaxby’s, too! I know you had a beautiful cake, and being seven is special. Love to see you smile with those front teeth out! Love and kisses to you!

    Callie continues to teach us all much more than we could ever teach her. She never fails to smile for the camera. We love the Golden family, every one of them, and don’t know what our lives would be without y’all. God put Callie right where He wanted her because He knew how much you all would love and care for her. She’s amazing, and so are y’all! Hope the boys are all doing well.
