Fun Birthday Weekend

My oldest daughter is coming in from collage tonight to celebrate her 21st birthday. We have big plans this weekend and I think she will really like the gift me and her momma got for her.
This girl is something else. I could not be more proud of the life she is living and the woman she is turning out to be. Even though I am suppose to be the teacher in life, I often find the roles reversed and she is the one that pulls me through the tough times. When she is home everyone's mood is better, more laughter is echoed through the house and the sun seems to shine a little brighter even on a cloudy day. Her bubbly personality just seems to get to ya and you start feeling the same way, you can't help it.
It seems like just yesterday she was only eight years old and in my mind I still see her that way. It slipped away so fast. 
She asked me a while back if I had any regrets. Even though I have always taught her to live without any, I said I did. My biggest regret was chasing the dollar and not spending more time with her while she was growing up. I didn't see that until she was gone.

I got her for the next couple of days and we are going to have a great time.
I will keep you updated,



  1. Nothing better than having all your brood home and together. Happy birthday to BEB're right, she is an awesome young lady already and she's barely spread her wings yet. Just imagine what she will accomplish in the next few years!

    Blessings to all of you ...enjoy your weekend!


    1. Thanks HB,
      I call her my bread and butter. I want to live on her ranch and manage her properties. LOL

  2. OMG! I can tell she's giggling in that photo!! So precious, and how lucky you are to see it and recognize it for what it is. A young woman who has no regrets where her daddy is concerned. You are her hero, accept it!

  3. The bubbles shine right off that photo :)
