I entitled this blog "moments" because this is one of the moments I never thought I would see. I never thought I would see my daughter turn 13 or let her have a sleepover with friends and scare them to death while watching "The Purge". I never thought my daughter would even like scary movies. After all, my life was supposed to end when she was 8. But it didn't, because only one being knows my fate. And I thank Him for these moments I've been able to share with my daughter, family and friends.
I've been able to be here for my daughter through middle school (worst years of school). She has thrived at everything she set her mind to. I wish she would set her mind to her grades, but she still has all A's and B's, and we aren't all perfect.
The most exciting part of this year was watching her as one of the Team Captains, help take her middle school volleyball team on to win the county championship. In middle school, that's as far as you go. But, as an 8th grader, they won! I couldn't contain my excitement or praise God enough for allowing me to live long enough to see her so happy and proud.
I know, I may be the overbearing proud parent. But she is my world. And that moment is one I will never forget. I've posted a few pictures from friends and at the game itself. I'm so happy her father encouraged her passion for the sport she now loves, lives, and breathes.
That's it for now. Just wanted to share some encouragement. Thank you for your continuous prayers and well wishes. Please keep them coming. I really want to see her grow up. She's at that age now where she pretty much is embarrassed if I look at her, but I know it will pass. I did the same to my mom. God bless you all and thank you Lord for this, and all of these days.
