Our Hayley turns 14!

" A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future"   Author Unknown

There is nothing like holding your child in your arms for the first time. All the worries and wonders just melt away and you know a love so great you can't possibly put it into words. Hayley has brought me so much joy, I am so very blessed to have her in my life and to have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom and enjoy every minute of every day of her life. This is one of my favorite pictures of Hayley and I :-)

This is when she received her first cell phone and the joy and tears that day! But to me...just another moment to remind me of how fast she is growing up! That tiny little baby I rocked in my arms is growing into a beautiful young lady right before my eyes!

"A daughter is a mother's gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self. And mother's are their daughter's role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships"  Victoria Secunda

There are so many wonderful things about you Hayley I could write a book! You have accomplished so much in 14 years and I know the future holds incredible things for you! Whatever you decide I'll be there for you....100%. Your beauty, smarts, kindness, respect for others and humor will take you so far!

Don't EVER stop being who YOU are or change for anyone! Thank you for making me smile when I turn on my phone and see all your selfies! LOL

Can't believe last year you became a quickly this year has flown by!

You're not only an amazing daughter, you are an incredible big sister, whom someone looks up to very much!! ;-)

Your smile, no matter how goofy, lights up a room and fills my heart with joy and so much love!

Happy 14th birthday my beautiful, baby girl. I love you more than I could ever put into words!

"We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing"  Louisa May Alcott

One of my favorite songs, for both you and your sister.....

To you from daddy, this song by Tim McGraw.... Happy, happy birthday!!!
