Yesterday was one of those milestones for our family. Watching your daughter turn into a young lady tugs at a mothers heart in a good way. It's a tentative feeling. It's as if she is in the process of entering her chrysalis stage and I'm on the outside watching. While she is on the inside changing and I can see the wings forming. The wings are damp and wet and transforming like a new butterfly. Soon very soon she will be ready to fly. I woke up in the middle of the night out of a deep sleep and wrote a few words to share with her and her class. Hope you don't mind a little different blog today.
From the day they told me “It’s A Girl!" My heart was wrapped around every little curl.
Wasn't it just yesterday that I had you in dresses and bows...
snuggling my face against chubby fingers and toes.
I wish someone would of told me then… that I would blink and you would be ten.
I still remember when the distance in-between...
felt light years away before I'd have a teen.
It seems we are quickly drawing near... To the time of your release I fear.
But before I let you go, there are a few things I want you to know.
Be kind to others for life is short. But more importantly please be kind to yourself.
True success is taking as many people as you can with you to the top.
It's okay to be scared and it's okay to be different, you will bloom when the time is right.
No matter how bad it gets or how big of a mistake you make… I will always love you.
It's okay to change your mind even if it's in the final hour... I will support you.
Don't ever turn your back on your family or your faith even when things get tough.
Remember there are consequences to everything you do...
Especially with social media, meaning anything you write or post.
As you prepare for the ride of your life, hang on tight to good positive friends…
You will need them on this journey with all its twists and bends.
There’s so much more I want to say, to make sure I protect you in every way.
Unfortunately that's not how it works... As the final year of high school lurks,
Go celebrate your senior year, you have so many great times ahead to share!
I’m sure I speak for all the moms, when I say....
I'm so proud of the women you've become.
I know you are nowhere close to being done!
Keep looking forward so you don't miss what God puts in front of ya!
