I Love You Every Minute of Every Day, My Beautiful Daughter

I looked at you today and saw the same beautiful eyes that looked at me with love when you were a baby.

I looked at you today and saw the same beautiful mouth that made me cry when you first smiled at me when you were a baby.

It was not so long ago that I held you in my arms long after you fell asleep and I just kept rocking you all night long.

I looked at you today and saw my beautiful daughter no longer a baby but a beautiful person with a full range of emotions, feelings, ideas and goals.

Everyday is exciting as I continue to watch you grow. I want you to always know that in good and bad times I will love you and no matter what you do or how you think or what you say you can depend on my support, guidance, friendship and love every minute of every day I love being your mother.

The Cowboy Boots

Thought this was cute and wanted to share. Hope you like it or at least it makes you smile!

The Cowboy Boots

Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten
students put on his cowboy boots?

He asked for help and she could see why.

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on.
By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, 'Teacher, they're on the wrong feet.' She
looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than
it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get
the boots back on, this time on the right feet.

He then announced, 'These aren't my boots.'

She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, 'Why didn't you say
so?' like she wanted to. Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting
boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said,
'They're my brother's boots. My mom made me wear 'em.'

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But she mustered up what grace and
courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his little feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, 'Now, where are your mittens?'

He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots.'

She will be eligible for parole in three years!

I know it has been a while...Life in my world has been crazy. I do miss everyone and hope all is well with you. Hopefully, soon I will be by your place for a visit.
