It’s my daughters 17th birthday today… how time flies. It seems like only a short time ago she was a baby. I often think that children teach us more than we teach them. She was my first child and I had no idea about being a mom, but she has taught me to be a great mom. She is so patient, kind, creative, intelligent and loving. Lily would never be mean to anyone and she has been a great teenager. She is learning to drive now and people ask me are you nervous, but I’m actually not because with every stage in her life we’ve never rushed her with anything and she always seems to be ready and do well. I’m excited to see what she does with her life.
