All Grown Up!

The one who made me a mother for the first time is 18 today! 18? I was JUST 18. It doesn't seem possible that our outgoing, beautiful, witty little girl has reached this age this fast! She is an amazing young woman and an inspiration to me. God has blessed her with so many wonderful gifts... it's truly amazing what she can accomplish. In any creative venue she is truly talented. An awesome singer, pianist, artist, writer... the list goes on and on. There are so many great qualities she possesses that I wish I had. A complete work of art...my favorite picture of these shots, above

Kayla, may God bless you today and always. I pray for you always. And I love you so much Sweet Pea!

You have a beautiful daughter! One reason she is so wonderful is because she has a wonderful mama! But she must be sooo much older than me to have a daughter that is an adult!

Pretty young lady. Sounds like she has a smart head on her shoulders also. You are a blessed mama. I want my 13yr old to stay my baby forever. They grow up fast don't they!

I also feel like I was just 18.

I cannot imagine any of my children turning 18.
