My Daughter

You’ll never really know, my dear,
Just how much you mean to me,
A mother’s love, buried so deep,
That only my heart can see.

When I sit and really stare at you,
All I can do is grin,
Somewhere down deep inside,
I see myself within.

I’d never change a thing in you,
I thank God that your so fine,
Even when your at your worst,
I’m so proud that you are mine.

The roads we have traveled,
were not always that good,
I would take back all the pain you’ve felt,
Only if I could.

I know that I’m not perfect,
It’s the best that I can do,
But everyday, I thank the lord,
For a daughter as special as you.

Can you believe that I am actually getting around to doing a roundup again?  I have shared a couple of things I found while scouring the pages this week that I have bookmarked. Believe me there was more, but time ran out. 

I am in love…… m

Can you say WUNDERBAR?  Melanie really outdid herself on this piece of furniture, but then again all her work/redo’s are great. Check this out at The Frosted Gardner, you don’t want to go though if you don’t have LOTS of time to look around. 

Are you ready for another great transformation?  Check out what Leigh of Dirt Cheap Decor did here.  I’m in love with those doors as a headboard and the colors in this room are so tranquil, gotta love the little sparkly chandelier.


How simple and cute is this little idea that Sarah @2 Giggles Boxes created.  Thinking this is VERY doable.  B

I hope you enjoyed the small amount of eye candy this week. 

Need to scoot, got lots to do today….I mean after all it is a special day.  B

Hey Tori!! I called and sang to you on your voice mail but thought I would go ahead and join the others here to send out another Happy Birthday! As I mentioned in my voice mail...this is the first day of the last year for you to be a teenager!! ;-) But, that's best I can remember since it was so loooong ago...the 20's are a pretty good decade.

Hey Tok,
I wish you had off today so we could go do something together. I'd take you to a movie or something. I still remember the day you were born. I was the Happiest brother in the world I had never been a big brother before, I'd always been the younger brother. Then they took you away in that helicopter and I thought I might never see you again. I was so upset, I didn't understand what was wrong, I was still to young So we all stood outside watching it fly away and we said a prayer, But I'd never think that God could create and give me a sister as amazing a You, I just want you to know that I'm blessed to have you in my life and so is everyone that you touch. Have a fantastic Birthday and I'll C U 2night. Love ya Toki.

Hi Cindy and what a nice tribute to the birthday girl. Happy Birthday Tori! I remember when I was 19 so long ago. Enjoy your youth. Rejoice in the Lord because this is the day He made. A special day because he created you, unique and beautiful! Hugs and blessings

Tori,you're in our hearts and in our thoughts each day throughout the year, so it just seems natural, when your special day is here, to tell you that you're wonderful and dear to us. We remember when you were born, you were so far away we couldn't be there but we were so excited we had a little grandaughter, then we were told you were very sick so we prayed God would be with you and heal you.So God heard our prayers. This day is special because God created you and what a beautiful person you've become. Happy Birthday Princess and we love you so much. Mema and Papa

Dear Tori, when I first met you, you were still a little girl. I have had the pleasure watching you grow, mature and blossom into such a beautiful young lady and now to a woman. This is your last year as a teenager. Hard to believe. You are beautiful both inside and out; God reacher perfection when you were created. Thank you for being the best sister that I never had. I love you so much and am so blessed to have you in my life. Happy Birthday to you and many more to come. Love, Stephanie
