My Girl is 18 Today
And there you have it. My sweet, cute, curly-haired baby has grown into a mostly sweet, very cute, hair-straightener kind of gal. I have done a flower arrangement, delivered it to school. I am baking a cake & making frosting from scratch. All the mommy things that I hope will never change but know inevitably must.
I am wishing my girl the best of everything her life has to offer. May she never close a door without ensuring an open window. May she lead with her heart, but think with her head. May she fail & learn the lesson. May she always remember from whence she has come, where she is going & where she left the map. And, may she never forget - not one single thing.
