Someone pinch me!
As hard as it was to believe that my BABY is 5 years old...it's even harder to believe that my FIRST baby is 22 years old! Yes, I said TWENTY-TWO! I feel faint!
I've gotta tell you, I have truly been blessed with some drop dead gorgeous daughters. But I am totally floored as to HOW beautiful this one turned out. I mean, I knew when she was born that she was a pretty baby, but I don't think I appreciated it as much as I would've had I been an older, more mature mother.
But as she grew older, God showed me more...not just through her beautiful face, but through her sweet spirit, that she's a beautiful person INSIDE as well.
Sure, we've had our issues...especially when she became a teenager. But what mother doesn't experience those times?
Now back to this 22 years old thing. What a blessing this young lady has become. She has grown up into a responsible adult. She's taking care of herself (and her cute little puppy) :-) What's funny about this is, she's finding out that being an adult and having to do for yourself isn't as fun as she thought it would be. She's finding that you can't just go to that "big ole grey box" and get money out anytime you want to...there's got to be money in there to get some out...LOL. But I'm beyond proud of her for taking care of her business.
Briyanna, I could not have asked for more special girls than you and your sister.
God has truly blessed me with the best of the best. I am SO proud of you and I love you SO much!!!
Please don't ever let a day go by without remembering that.
Happy Birthday, my dear beautiful daughter. Mommy loves you!!!
