A thing of beauty

This daughter of mine.

I made her.

Well, obviously I had some help.

She is one amazing girl.

Let me tell you some things about her-

  • She makes her bed daily (because she wants to) Clutter makes her nuts.
  • Her grades are outstanding.
  • She almost always does as she should.
  • Last week she ran an 8 minute mile (she wanted to prove to herself she could)

She is a parents dream. And without her, my life would be incomplete. I often say she is a great kid and it is amazing her daddy and I haven’t messed her up!

*She is a teenager. And MOODY. Sometimes that is really hurtful.

Things have gotten easier and more difficult in a whole other way over the last 15 years.

Lucky me that she is my firstborn, what a way to break me in!


  1. Don't you wish our daughters could see themselves through our eyes, and more so, through our heart? SURELY they would understand and it would make things easier.

    She is a beautiful girl!

  2. Gorgeous girl you helped make there! She looks like a good girl...even if she can get a little moody from time to time lol.
