Day 1.5 – Oldest daughter

Technically, it’s still day 1 since I went to bed after midnight.  But I’ve slept and it feels like day 2.  How about a compromise where instead, it’s day 1.5? 

Today, I am thankful for my oldest daughter.  She is a beautiful young lady with a heart of gold.  She loves to read books.  She’s just like me in that she is a bit shy, and a lot insecure, and we have the same sense of humor and watch a lot of the same types of shows.  It’s hard to be her mother sometimes, because I also want to be her friend, but I know I have to be her mother, first.

She’s a good servant of God, and I appreciate her more and more with every passing day.  She is the one who made me a mother first.Image
