My daughter


My daughter is 16, she is a junior in high school and she is the typical teenage girl. She tries my patience, she aggravates me to tears and she worries me. She also fills me with pride, makes my heart swell with love, and she amazes me everyday. I was 18 when i had my daughter, I believe that everything that life hands us is for a reason.I say this because I know had I not gotten pregnant with her I would not have the life that I have now. I know that I would have moved away from my small home town and then I wouldn't have E, S or the wife. My daughter may not have been in my plans, but I thank the goddess each and everyday for the unexpected joy that she has been. She is growing up way way to fast. Tonight she competed in her conference championship run for cross country. She placed 23 out of 112 girls. she didn't quite make the time she wanted but it was freezing cold and she did very well. (she missed her time by 12 seconds)I watch her everyday and wonder what she will grow to be. she dreams of going to the Air Force like her mama, She wants to be a police dog handler. I have told her she can be what ever she wants to be I will love her no matter what. I am adopted so when she was born I remember thinking this is the first person that I have ever been connected to, my blood runs in her veins I will protect her. It seems like that was just yesterday.I can't wait to see what she will make of herself. She has already made me so proud.

I had my son around the same age you had your daughter..and I agree, he may not have been planned, but my life would not be what it was had he not entered it when he did!

This blog made me smile :) Even though she's growing up fast... I'm sure you've raised her "right" so it'll all end up OK!!!

I know what you mean. I wouldn't be who I am and what I am if it wasn't for me having my son when I did. Your daughter is beautiful!
