This Moment

Had the most wonderful weekend with my daughter.  Saturday morning started with her flying in to bed with us during a very loud and lengthy thunderstorm.  I watched my 15 year old daughter sleeping peacefully in between us as we rode out the storm.  I thank God for her, my husband, our life, and the fact that she still crawls into bed with us.  It's all about family, it's all about the connections we share and the love we have for one another. 

Saturday evening we went to the Taylor Swift concert and when she sang her hit "Fifteen," I wept.  There is so much ahead for my girl.  Heartbreaks, successes, first kiss, first formal dance, so many things that she will begin to experience this Autumn when those doors open and she walks through them as a freshman girl.  Thank you Abby-Rose for being who you are, being your Mommy is the best thing I have ever done in my life.  I love you.
