Some people naturally love children and want to be around them. You would see them around children. It usually is a wonderful sight to behold. And some are the exact opposite, but with their own kids, they find out that children can open up a soft spot you never knew existed.
Both ways, one of the ways to know if you are a good parent is that you desire, from time to time, to be good to your kids and constantly seek ways of expressing love to your children, especially on their birthday. If you are privileged to have a daughter celebrating her birthday, 18th birthday at it, celebrating her would be a good way to express your love as a good parent.
Now, most female children are delicate and sweet to have. And sometimes, you might even wonder why some 18-year-old daughters still behave like a baby. Might be because daughters are easily attached to their fathers or the mother loves her mini-me.
However, of all gifts to give your daughter on her big day, we cannot over-emphasize the great value of prayers. Other gifts may get exhausted, but prayers will always stand.
Is it your daughter’s 18th birthday already? Then, you’re about to give her the best gift — prayers. Whether she is your biological daughter, adopted daughter, god-daughter, church daughter or school daughter, praying for her on her birthday is a great way to express your love and usher her into a glorious new year.
