Happy Birthday, Sweet Child of Mine


Today is the celebration of the birth of my oldest child.

She calls it the '32 on the 2' birthday.

I feel as though this once upon a time baby, turned toddler, turned teenager, turned wife, turned mother has been with me my entire life. It's hard to imagine I ever existed, without being her mom. She's been a piece of me since I was a 19 year old kid.

My love for this child of mine, has grown deeper with each passing year. These past few years, seeing her as a mom...has taken my love for her to an all new level. Her patience and nurturing for her sweet girls, brings so much joy to my heart. When Precious or Bright Eyed Beauty come to me and sing, "You Are My Sunshine" my heart soars. The girls tell me they know I sang this song to their mommy when she was little...I know one day this song will be sung to their daughters.



You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are gray.
You'll never know, Kel
How much Momma loves you
So don't take
My Sunshine away.

Happy Birthday, Kel.
I do love you so.
