A daughter is a gift of love.

My daughter, Kim, will be 39 this week.
How can it be? It only seems like a few short years ago when
she was outside playing with her dog and kittens.
And sneaking strawberries out of the garden.
Before I knew it, she was in school and busy with softball,
basketball, and cheerleading.
Her hair is darker now and the cheerleading,
basketball and softball playing had to come to an end.
She injured her knee and had arthoscopic surgery
and the doctor said NO to running or jumping.
She went to many of her brother's games to cheer him on, tho.
Kim was an Honor Roll student and went on to college.

This photo was taken several years ago. And
my son didn't have a beard, it's a shadow.
My daughter got married while in college to her
high school sweetheart. They were married 13 years but,
sadly, it didn't work out and now she's single again. At
the present time, she's living at home with us and we enjoy
having her around. Our Kim loves to talk and always has
stories to tell about her "kids ". She graduated from college with a
major in Child Development and has been working around children ever since.
Currently, she is the director of an Early Learning Center near here.
Here we are, the proud parents of our baby girl. She has always
brought joy to our lives and we are very proud of her. And I'm
proud to say that she's not only my daughter, but also a good friend.
We can talk about anything together and we do! She is sweet and
charming and has a terrific personality. A real pleasure to be
around. And we love her very much!
A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend.

My daughter graciously consented to having her photos put in this post. Next month is her brother's turn. His birthday is about a month away so I'll have to be working on him to allow a photo or two also. Shhh. Don't tell him that I sneaked one of him in this post, although it is an older photo he hasn't changed all that much. Now as far as hubby's and my photo...LOL...we look nothing like that photo now, of course. You know, it was only taken nearly 39 years ago and there's been
a few many changes.
It is Sunday night as I prepare this post and the weather has been very stormy in our area and other parts of the state. I've heard that Joplin was hit by a tornado and possibly other places and I'm waiting for more news from those areas. Hubby got called to work several hours ago. For those who may be new to reading this, he's a rural electric lineman. Thankfully we have power in our small town. It seems like it rains more often than not, lately. Our son just texted me from the airport in Dallas where they are delayed again due to the weather. Hope the weather is good wherever you are!
Until next time...
