She is 17 today

Today, my beautiful baby girl turns 17.  I just can’t wrap my brain around that.

17 years ago, they were putting this little 7 pound 10 oz bundle in my arms and my first words to her were “Hello baby”.  I couldn’t believe how beautiful she was then and she’s not changed a bit.

Samantha is so brave, intelligent, and hardworking.  She knows where she wants to go and she knows how she’s going to get there.  I was not anywhere near that at her age.  She is a defender of the weak.  She is strong.   She knows how to have fun.  She is thrifty and loyal.  She surprises me daily with her maturity and wisdom.  I look forward to the friendship I’ll have with her in the future.  She is someone everyone is going to want to know.
