While I'm happy to be home from California, I'm still enjoying the memories of the beauty:
the ocean, the sunsets, LaRae with us ...
Her birthday is coming up in about a week. She'll be 18. I'm having a "mommy-moment"--
It's the first birthday I won't be able to share with her, and I'm a little sad about it.
I'll focus today on how blessed I am to have her,
to know she is healthy, productive, and happy, and I'll thank my Abba
for helping her be a blessing to the world around her.
Love you, sweet daughter.
