I first off, want to wish all my dear blogging friends who are Mom's a
I decided today to share with you a favorite picture of my sweet daughter. She was all of 4 years old in this picture. A toe headed blond, with a very outgoing personality. Even at this age she was gathering her friends in the *hood* and running in a pack, playing the summer days away. I have such dear memories of summer times with her.What I don't often share, is that she is a true miracle. Between problems with me and hubby we should NEVER have had any children. I truly believe my crying out to GOD, or as I fondly refer to my *Hannah* prayer...GOD heard my cry and blessed us. In May of 1991 I found out I was pregnant, very close to Mother's Day. It was such a special Mother's Day for me!
Even though God choose to only give us one child...I couldn't be more proud to be Michaela's Mom. I very ofter refer to her as being 3 children wrapped in one! And if you knew her, you'd know why I say that!
By the way..her name Means..WHO is of the LORD.
I have known in my Mother's heart that HE has a special purpose for this girl. Her heart is tendered toward the things of the Lord and that has brought such joy to me. Now, things haven't always been easy, as a matter of fact we have had a very difficult year and a half...but I can see how GOD has really used this to bond us closer together.
Yesterday was Michaela's PROM. I was so tickled that she asked me to go with her to get her hair and make up done. We had the best time! And then when we returned home, I got to be her manacurist, painting her hands and toes.
This picture, of course doesn't do her beauty justice!!! And that dress, is SO my daughter's personality. I just LOVE her to pieces!

Unfortunately this picture of me is YUCKY...but I so wanted to have one of the 2 of us on this special day. She is a junior this year, heading towards her senior year and turning 18 in December. OH my..where have the years gone? It's so hard to believe that my daughter has grown so quickly before my eyes!

I am the luckiest mom in the whole wide world! YEAH!!!

M is just such a beautiful young lady, Lorena, & so lucky to have you for her mom. And you are very blessed to have such a precious, loving daughter like her! That pic of the two of you together is so sweet! I can just see you painting her nails! Did ya put a teensy rose on one of them?!?

Hope you are feeling better now after your trip to the dentist. They always scare me & make me sick, too!

Love you,
Angelic Accents
