The One Who Made Me A Mother

Good Morning friends! Today we are celebrating my oldest daughters birthday. It's hard to even remember what life was like before she came along. No she doesn't read my blog but someday she might so today, this is for her. Happy Birthday!

12 years ago today you changed my life in a way I never anticipated. We prayed that you would be happy, healthy and full of life. We planned and hoped and dreamed of what life would be like once you were here.  We knew our lives would be different, we knew things would change but no book, no words of advice, nothing could ever prepare us for the gift we were given that day. 
You've grown into a kind, caring, sweet, smart, funny, beautiful young lady. You put other people first, you're sensitive, talented, athletic and you love with all your heart. 
Today we celebrate that special day. The day you arrived and brought a ray of sunshine into our lives that was brighter than anything we've ever had in our life. Happy Birthday Sweet 12 year old. 

The best is yet to come...
Your Mom
