Happy Birthday Miss C

Today is my baby's birthday! She was born sixteen very short years ago. I am very blessed to call this child daughter and am amazed at her kind and gracious heart. She brings such joy to our lives. Because of her, I've fought to break the abusive cycle of mother-daughter relationships that have plagued my family for generations. She is one of the reasons I try to be a better person.


Please forgive the poor quality of some of these photos. Taking a picture of a picture doesn't always work well

The minute I saw her I thought she looked just like her Grandma Tykie

And here she is with her Grandma. I love this photo and we all miss our Tykie so very much!

You can't see it, but she's wearing rubber boots. That's a country girl for ya!

Fun with Master C aka The Game Master. These two are more like siblings than cousins.

My little girl. Sigh. She's taller than I am, funnier than I am, and far more merciful. I am blessed. Truly.

I love looking at photos like this. 16 years in 9 still moments. Amazing. And to find such healing through your daughter is beautiful.
