If i could only slow down the time..

No one ever told me that when your kids hit high school that life would all of a sudden be in fast forward. As a parent we often say, "I can't wait til you grow up." At what point can we take the words back and stop the clock. Can I hold you and never let go. Your smile brings sunshine to the darkest of days. Recently I realized that I enjoy life so much more when you are around. I'm no longer telling you to go play, but come keep me company. 16 years ago I smiled as you entered the world and today I smile more. What a kind and beautiful woman you have become. Your shoulder I have cried on more than once. You are so much more than just my daughter but my friend. Your beauty reflects more each day. I'm so proud to be your mom. Keep smiling, your smiles are contageous.


  1. Aww so beautiful! You are both just amazing and I love you both so much!

  2. This makes me all weepy and gives me those chills of joy. I agree with Superwoman, you both are amazing!
