And this is Briyanna now...23 years later. What a gorgeous young woman she has turned into. Don't you think? Sure, we've been through some STUFF! And saying that is merely scratching the surface, lol. But, again, through the strength, only given to me by God Himself, did we make it through those "terrible teen" years. :-).
Briyanna has been on her own now for almost 5 years. And I am BEYOND proud of her. She is making her own way and taking care of own business. It's so funny to talk to her on the phone sometimes and hear how being an adult really....um, shall we say SUX (her words), LOL. I remember when she was little and we'd be out shopping. I'd see something that I'd like and maybe say, "I like that! Wish I could get it today.", Or, "I'd like to have that...". Briyanna would say, "Mom, just GET IT!!" I'd find myself explaining to her that it's just not THAT simple.
NOW she's seeing what I meant by that. And she's making very good and wise choices about what to do with her money...and her time.
Anyway, Briyanna, if you're reading this...ALWAYS know that I love you beyond words and beyond your understanding. Being a mother is very hard work....but there is no one in this world that I'd rather hear call me "MOMMY" than you and your sister. You have been and continue to be a true blessing to me. I'm so proud of you and so proud that you're MY daughter. Have an awesome day, my love!
So you guys ready for your Friday Flower Fix? Okie dokie...here ya go:
Ok, these aren't only for you, my fellow readers, they're for Briyanna too. It seems I remember her telling me that she loves Cala Lillies. And I KNOW she loves things that BLING...so here ya go, babe! :-)
Welp, that's all I've got for now. I've got a few other things to share today...but wishing my daughter a HAPPY BIRTHDAY was the most important. So with that said, ya'll come back by later on today (or tomorrow), I may have more for ya! Have a groovy day!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRI!!! Mommy loves you :-D
