My Oldest

Yesterday I talked to her and we decided that she would come to visit on Memorial Day, her 19th birthday. Instead of Mother's Day like we had talked about early in the week. I was pleasantly surprised when she said she would be by in about a half hour. I told her I had been crying all morning, missing my Mom, which it had been 19 years years since she had passed away. They were really close, her first grandchild and the only one she got to see. Well H made me start crying all over again, because she said its Mother's day I have to come by.

Well when she came in I was still sitting on the bed and she hands me a pencil drawing. For the last few years she has given me a pencil drawing and this year, she went and purchased a frame. I just started bawling all over again. it is now on my bedroom wall, the only thing in this room. We have yet to paint. so no artwork, pictures, etc. She is a great kid and I do love her very much.

Thank you H for making me feel like the greatest mom in the world. Dag nabit there's the tears again.

Sounds like you raised yourself a wonderful daughter!

The love that she shows you reflects all the love you have given her over the last 19 years.
