As the years pass and each of us get older, I grow evermore conscious of how precious the moments shared with my beautiful daughter are. And oh how I treasure them.
Have the years always been smooth? No. Have there been bumps along the way. Oh yeah! One of the most tumultuous relationships that exist is that of a mother and daughter. And ours was certainly no exception to that rule! With that said, I am also mindful of all of the good times we've shared along the way. And all of the hurdles we have jumped over together. Hand-in-hand, mother and daughter against the world!
It brings a smile to my face as I watch the love of my life get older, growing into a beautiful young woman, talented, intelligent, gifted, sensitive, spiritual, loving, thoughtful ... well, you get the picture. :)
It is interesting, as we get older, we hear our mother shine through us. I cannot tell you how many times I've opened my mouth and out popped my mother. I observe the same in my daughter. I see myself in her, as I see my mother and father in myself.
How blessed I am to have been given such a gift of nurturing the life of one of God's angels here on earth.
I love you my twinkle-twinkle-little-star.
With a smile on my heart, my mind recounts the time we spent together. Dinner, a movie, beautiful flowers, and most importantly - the memories. Locked away forever.
Happy Mother's Day from a very Happy Mommy!
