Have you heard people say that time flies when you are having fun or life is short. Hold onto the memories. Make every moment count? I bet you have heard them all and then some. When I was in my late twenties I got married. When I was in my early thirties I had my first child. I now have a high school graduate. She went from playing with blocks and coloring to becoming a fine young lady. Of course we had our challengers with learning and socialization it all comes with being a parent. I knew it my heart that everything would be okay. I am so proud of her. She is kind, sweet, smart, and very dedicated in whatever she puts her mind too. She has always put in 150% I could not ask for better. She knows her capabilities and she knows that this is just the beginning. The world is right in front of her. She has her goals, her dreams, her way of life. I am so proud of this young lady! I try and give her advice about life and I tell her not everyone is nice,. save other paycheck and always make sure your bills are paid. I know there will be tears when I see her on that stage. I will picture her as a little girl and remember she made me Mom. The best job in the world and the hardest. Congratulations my sweet girl! We love you! Dream BIG! Now onto the next life lesson.
