Daniz is Turning Nine

It seems only yesterday when “Papa God” blessed Jonjie and I with the “most precious gift ever”…our daughter, Shemaella Daniz. And she will be 9 years old tomorrow.

Our baby is turning a into a little lady. And I can’t help but think…time flies…so fast.

She is the reason why we are a family. She gives us immense joy and happiness. She is the child of our hearts.

We have waited and prayed for her for seven years, and it was worth the wait. And we will forever be grateful…thus, we named her Shemaella.

Inspires gratitude and thanksgiving, a big YES...love life to its fullest measure, multiple YES...fill our hearts and mind with serenity, hmmmnnn...
Last night, when I entered our room, father and daughter are sleeping side by side. Just like the old days, when she was a baby and she love sleeping close to her father. It brought back fond memories…

As parents, we have our ‘ups‘ and ‘downs’.

We want her to have the things that we do not have as a child. On the other hand, we want her to learn to appreciate and be thankful for the things that she has…the difference between needs and wants.

We often questioned ourselves if we are doing the right thing with her. Are we too strict? Or do we easily give in to her whims? Are we patient enough to understand her?

But amidst all the questions and uncertainties, there is one thing that is constant and certain. That we love her so much and we will always be here no matter what.

While browsing the net about poems and quotes for Daughters, this caught my attention as it aptly describes Daniz and our feelings for her.

An Angel Left Her Wings

© Tina M. Marascia, Published: Feb 2006


I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she's sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what's right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.

Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She's helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.

When she sees someone is sad, it opens up her heart.
She wants to do all that she can; she wants to do her part.
She'll squeeze away the sorrow and make me forget about my pain.
She shows me where the sun is when we're hiding from the rain.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won't end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.

When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.

And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.
