Ashley & Steven

Where does the time go !! It sure flys in the blink of an eye. I have been meaning to post some pictures of my daughters prom, and now here we are 3 weeks away from grad !! Holy Moly !! Now I understand what everyone has said about 'Enjoy every minute, the next thing you know they are all grown up.' Well here she is....all grown up.

I took her on her first day of kindergarden,12 years ago, and I'll be there for her last day of high school. Like all parents, we have been there for every milestone, every project, every problem, and every solution, boyfriends, heartache, and laughter. I know she's graduating , but then what ? She'll move on, work, then move out, get engaged, and then get married, then have kids of her own. Or the order may be reversed a bit, but she'll still move on. It's amazing how fast they grow up. My son is 11 now. Already I feel like at his young age, time is flying past. I can almost look him right in the eye. But , I am also only 5'1', so I think I can look most 11 and 12 year olds in the eye, LOL !! Steven ( in the photos) is rather tall, so I need a chair to stand on if I want to to be eye level with him, LOL !! Anyways, just thought I would post a few photos. The other girl in the burgundy dress is Ashley's best friend since grade 2. Steven is Ashley's boyfriend...then they are friends...then they are dating again...sigh...I get lost after awhile...LOL !!

My Mom......

She is a nurturer, she is strength, she is love......

She is Happiness, Laughter, Life, Wisdom, She is everything I hope to be.....She is my Mom....I Love You !!

"A mother will lend a helping hand

until you have the strength to stand.

She'll pick you up when you are down,

when you need a friend she'll stick around.

A mother is one who listens well,

will keep her word; will never tell.

A mother never pokes or pries

but stands quietly by your side,

giving you the strength you need,

encouraging you to succeed.

A mother is one who can be strong

when you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me;a reflection of Him in your face I see,

a love that knows no boundaries."

Excerpt from ' More Than A Mother' By Kari Keshmiry
