Today my little girl graduates high school! Here she is at age 5, it is obvious she's had some falls. These falls that caused little bruises or the need of a Band-Aid were easy to fix when she was 5.
As she grew into a pre-teen things changed, she was growing up and in doing so she began to have mood swings. Things weren't so easy to fix. There were many of those in the past few years. She had a wild ride to growing up and my hairdresser can attest to that fact...lol!
So in the early years it was all fixed so easy, a kiss on an owie or a hug was all it took. These last few years we had to give a lot up to God and pray like the dickens. I'm so glad we did. We never gave up on our little spitfire!
Today she graduates from high school, she's no longer a little girl or a snarly teen but she's an 18 year old woman and the world is her oyster. Today she will put on her beautiful purple(not bad considering all she wore is black for the last 3 years) and she will hold her head high and she can be proud of how far she came. I can't wait to see where life takes her. My DH also wrote a lovely post today, we are very blessed to have her in our lives!
