Today is my oldest daughters birthday.  Today she is nineteen years old.  It’s hard to believe how fast time goes by.  It seems like you blink a few times and they are grown.

We have so many wonderful memories of childhood, even though there were various hardships and struggles along the way.  Just watching your children grow is a privilege and honor. 

Casey named every stuffed animal, Barbie, toy that could be named Lindsey, until she finally had her little sister – Lindsey.  She was determined she would have a little sister to take care of. 

Sisters fight, boss, share, play and love each other.  I love my girls, they make my life so much more complete. 

 Thank God for little girls.  Thank God for children. 

 

 

 

 

 

Now my oldest daughter is nineteen with so much of life in front of her.  Now her path is her choice and her dreams are something she can pursue on her own.  I am so thankful to be a part of it.  I love watching her change into an adult a little more each day.  Just as I’ve watched her little sister change into a highschool Freshman over the summer. 

If you have children or there are children in your life then you too are part of their lives and you too will influence them, their purpose, and their dreams.  We are all here to help each other.  We all have a purpose and when you invest in the youth, you are investing in the future.

Life is a gift, not to be wasted or taken for granted. I believe life is a journey, that we are put here for a purpose that each of us has to discover within ourselves. Each day we are given is a new opportunity to seize the moments, the experiences that make up our individual journey. I have seen my share of storms along the way, but have learned that with faith and good friends, there is nothing that you can’t face, learn from, and come out growing stronger from the experience. I have many interests, hobbies and passions. Writing, art, and expanding my knowledge about why people believe what they do, including studying different religions and cultures, becoming a Life Coach, practicing Reiki, and spending time with my girls, are some of my passions. Interests include: studying history, science, physics, walking/running, learning yoga, Pilates, trying new recipes, finding new and interesting places to visit, spending time with friends, learning new ways of doing things, guitar, piano, writing songs, photography, and painting and so much more than I could name here. I enjoy meeting new people, trading stories, ideas and sharing experiences. I love going to plays and concerts, and encouraging others to be their best while finding myself along the way.
