Today, my only child turns 18

Yes-I can't believe it. Today, my child turns 18 years old. 0-18 goes by so, so quickly!

This beautiful girl and I don't always get along. In this season of our lives, we don't see eye to eye on, well, practically everything. But, you know what, that doesn't matter. I love her unconditionally, with all my heart, forever and ever, amen!!!

Happy birthday, baby girl!

Aww, happy birthday Hoper!!!! I can't believe she's turned into such a lovely young woman (albeit a stubborn one - that must be her dad in her:-)).
I still have most of those baby pictures in my photo album - they grow up so fast. "Hope" she has a wonderful day.

Ahhhhhh......It's hard to believe she is 18 already. Happy Birthday, Hope!!!!!!!!! I remember the saying but not exactly. It says something like I can't believe how stupid my mother was when i was a teenager and she got a little smarter as I turned into my twenties and how the mother gets smarter and smarter as the child gets older. SO there is HOPE for HOPE. Someday in the future, she will be your dearest friend. Until then, hang in there and look forward to that day!!
