Let me tell you about my daughter.
It was 21 years ago today that I saw the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. She arrived at 2:30 in the morning, on my due date and hasn't been on time for anything since!
In the nursery at the hospital, the nurses referred to her as the "pretty baby" and she was truly beautiful.
Growing up, she was painfully shy. Rarely spoke out to anyone, even in class but was a real chatterbox at home. Then, she blossomed!
High school she became a cheerleader and came out of her shell. She made friends, went to dances and had boyfriends. Oh yes, not an easy time for mom but she always made me proud.
Now she is in college. She is a junior getting a double degree in nutrition and marketing. She gets straight "A's" and belongs to a sorority that stresses education.
Today I look back at 21 years. It makes me cry, it makes me smile, it makes me proud of what my wonderful, beautiful daughter has accomplished already and I know that she will thrive in the years to come.
Happy Birthday honey, I love you more....
