My best girl friends...





Taylor turns 15 in a few days and I can hardly believe she is growing into such a incredible lady.
I have loved the path that we have journeyed down together to get to this point in her sweet life. She is a remarkable daughter and a wonderful loving friend. She is so devoted to me and I guess I take that for granted thinking ALL 15 years old are this devoted but I know they're not. She is so protective of me and would fight anyone for my honor and I have to laugh when she takes up my burdens because that's what I'm supposed to be doing for her. She is so caring and gentle yet there is a side to her that I like to refer to as the

"Nana side."

She is so much like my mom.
Growing up if someone (anyone) would do something to hurt me she would come in with all guns blazing and not have a gentle and quiet spirit about it....
My mom is the most loyal person you would ever meet. She is always thinking of others and she always brings gifts when she goes shopping because she couldn't leave without buying everyone just a little something.
I love my mom and I'm so thankful that she is around to laugh with me and cry with me as I go through this stage of my life.
As I get older I realize how fragile life is and it really makes you stop and think about those around you

I know I will never be ready to let my mom go....

Channie-Mae is two, and boy she keeps me on my toes. She is hardly what I would call sweet..She is tough minded and strong spirited kinda like a mustang horse. She is nurturing though and for that I see STRONG possibilities..Scott laughs alot because he says that "she is a little Robin". I do see myself in her and I will start praying now for her future husband....lol
So these are the little women in my life whom I adore and devote myself to....

I would not trade it for anything in the world..........




Thanks Sara for the great pic...

Hi Robin!! Happy Birthday sweet Taylor!! Wonderful pictures and beautiful post. I know what you mean about taking her loyalty for granted. I fear that I do the same with my girls. Oh how blessed we are not to have "typical" teenage daughters. Love you. I guess I'm going to have to wait until after your Florida trip to see you, but I fear that time is running short before I move and it may not happen:o( If that proves to be the case, you must call me anyway and let me know what candles to send you OK!!!

Love,
Missy
