When my daughter was born, I remember one of the nurses saying “look at that red hair!” Her grandmother on her father’s side was a redhead so I wasn’t too surprised.
As the doctor laid her on my belly, I looked at her and something told me it was going to be a wild ride. And it has been … in a good way.
We had our moments though, as mothers and daughters do. What mother hasn’t enforced a curfew and been told “I hate you!” Haha! Been there – done that. But I wouldn’t trade my life as her Mom for anything.
This image is one I took when she was fifteen. The year she thought she knew everything. It shows on her face, doesn’t it?
I know for sure that God is the one who got us through THOSE days. He has such a sense of humor!
She’s a lovely woman now with a sense of adventure that continues to inspire me and all who are lucky enough to know her.
Be good to yourself and others. Namaste’
