Sometimes, this mother/daughter thing isn’t so easy. Personalities, hormones and tempers flare; a high tide washing over deep love.
She started out in life fighting; fighting to breathe, to grow and to stay alive while we prayed and stood watch. Watching, believing and waiting for God to move. She was our baby girl. He had to save her.
Praise God - He did.
We’ve had moments, storms and victories, memories along the way that steel the breath and bring the tears. Rejoicing over all the “firsts’ thus far and anticipating the ones yet to come.
It all flashes by, the years revealed in the flutter of graduation gowns and in promises held for the future.
I’m thanking God today for my daughter; for her spirit, her fire, her dreams, her beautiful smile…and her life.
Congratulations to you, Elise
Congratulations to the graduating class of 2012!
Be safe and be blessed!
