For some reason these pics (which I stole off Mel's facebook) could just make me weep...There's my beautiful girl on her actual birthday enjoying her day (which I am thrilled to death she was) without me there (the first one ever in her life I might add) with friends I have never met (except one of them) in a dress I have never seen her in, in her house which looks soo different from the last time I was there (which was over 8 months ago now)....I have beat this to death I know and I am sure most would just love to run and hide from me....But it struck me the other day (in a new way) that she is not a part of my every day life anymore, and she NEVER will be again....and sometimes I get tired of "pretending" it is OK, or seeing sunshine and roses in it all....It just sucks, and makes me sad.....She really does look pretty though I guess, and happy too.....and that cake that Heather got for her is really a stun...such talented people in this world....


  1. I know it's got to be hard to be away from your daughter, but even harder when it's on a day like that! I know my Mom goes through that with my sis. I hate it too.

  2. Hi Debbie,

    I feel your pain. Your daughter is gorgeous and looks to be having a very happy birthday. The only thing that keeps me going sometimes is knowing how happy my daughter is with her life, and then I just look forward to the next time I get to see her. (not often enough I know)

    We did good though, because our daughters are strong woman, and that was our goal when we raised them right? Well done to us both.

    Enjoy your day!

  3. I found your blog thru another blog and I must say you and you hubby look so familiar to me.....I wonder if our paths have crossed????


I am so glad that you would take the time to comment on my thoughts and feelings, it is such a blessing to me!
