Reflecting On my Daughters 12 years

Thursday, April 18, 2013

My baby turns 13 tomorrow and I helped clean up her room for a weekend of parties. I would put away something and then go into flashbacks of her younger days and then do it over again. I got the room looking much, much better but I felt really sad to put away toys, stuffed animals, pictures of childhood buddies, no longer around and a lot of her great momentos. I understand why she collects all these things, she just likle me very sentimental. I did not toss them but put them away for safe keeping. I was afraid she would be sad too when she got home from school but she didn't really notice that much. She tought the cleaning people had done it. I had mentioned she do it but now I am glad I did as she always makes a bigger mess and makes it into a major project.

I am thankful and tremdously blessed to have a sweet and loving daughter that is alive and well. I pray for those who have had major losses this horrific week! God be with them and their loved one's!

  Memories are often bittersweet and in fifteen years your daughter will love going through the boxes with you and sharing even more. Sounds like you had a serene, happy afternoon with this job.
