K turned 14 today! 14!!! I am ready and not ready. She is amazing. She has matured into a wonderful young lady. I see a very bright future ahead of her as she begins high school this year, but 14! That makes me feel old as her Mama. I am so blessed, though, she is amazing and I am the luckiest Mom ever. So blessed indeed!
I always have candles. Always. This time I knew I was getting low and I planned to buy them when I went grocery shopping. Somehow I forgot. I went to a different grocery store this morning and I remembered, but they didn't have any. Oh well....I probably had 7-10 at least, so maybe she would not get to blow out 14, but at least some.
Nope. I was wrong. NONE! And, by the time I discovered that it was NONE, it was too late to run to the store and buy some...we had to eat the cake and get the kiddos to their dad. Hmmm... What to do? Well, I went to the neighbors' house and asked them. They had one...a Thomas the Tank Engine one...Ha Ha...K got to blow out a Thomas candle on her 14th birthday. Luckily she is a very good sport and we just all found it funny.
Happy, Happy Birthday, K! I love you! I am so proud of you. You are so talented in so many ways. You are a friend to all. You are such a helper to me. I don't know how I would survive without you. I love our chats...you are truly one of my very best friends and I hope it will always be that way! You are intelligent and you are willing to work to achieve your desires and dreams. You are a great big sister. All four of your younger siblings look up to you with such love and respect. You are willing to stand for what is right and that takes courage. I love you, my sweet girl.
In other news, I do have a few posts to catch up on.... -sigh-..... behind again.
