" Another Big Day "


Today is another big day in our lives. Today is my daughter, Virginia Anne's, Birthday. She prefers to be called Ginny. When she was little, I would call her Ginger peach when she was good. Ginger snap when she wasn't so good. The latter was rare. Twenty - eight years ago today she was born. She has blessed my life in so many ways over the years. Ginny has been a constant,ever illuminating light in my life. She has lifted me up when I have been down. She has made me laugh when I wanted to cry. She has cheered me on in any endeavor I have tried. She has given me more pride then I could have ever dreamed I could feel. She has made me feel special when I thought I was ordinary. But I think most importantly, she has made me feel that I must have done something so right to be blessed with such an extraordinary human being in my life. She is special beyond any words that I could possibly come up with. So to my intelligent, loving, caring, compassionate, and truly heart and soul beautiful daughter, I love you Ginger Peach, Happy Birthday!

Mom!
Thank you for the sweet, sweet blog post. You are a fabulous mother. If it weren't for you, I would never have had the strength and drive to pursue my dreams. You're always there for me and you support every decision I make and let me learn from my mistakes. You truly are the best mother a child could ever have. I realize this more and more the older I get and I see the relationships my friends have with their parents. Nothing compares to our friendship/mother-daughtership. I love you so much!
