My Daughter


My Daughter
I wish you
the strength to
face challenges with
confidence.....
along with the
wisdom to 
choose your
battles
carefully...

I wish you
adventure on 
your journey and 
may you always
stop to help
someone along 
the way...
Listen to 
your heart
and take risks
carefully....

Remember
how much
you are loved...
I am so proud
of  you!



I found this quote on Pinterest and I really couldn't have said it better....not sure who the author is but I'm sure she is a mom sending her baby off to college or the big world! I want to give her all this last minute advice and warnings...but now I just find myself hugging her and soaking every minute up. I know she will make good choices and try her hardest....I know she is a great kid and I shouldn't worry....but I will! 5 more days....off to enjoy them!

LOVELY photograph. Beautiful sentiment from mother to daughter. no doubt she will be fine as she spreads her wings to fly off on this new journey in life. And believe it or not, you'll be fine too.

I feel like I am going through this experience with you and it makes me hold my girls a little tighter.

Even though you know she'll make the right choices, you'll still worry. That's your job mom, there is no getting away from it.

Why am I getting more nervous as everyday counts down? LOL
Oh yeah, been there, doing that.

What a great quote. You should be so proud of her - you've raised a great girl. But I'm sure you'll worry anyway - that's what moms are supposed to do xo

She is going to do just great. How could she not? She had a mommy like you.
