On this day 17 years ago, I was basking in the glow of new motherhood. The baby girl I held in my arms was the most beautiful child I had ever seen. She is still the most beautiful girl in the world to me. Not only is she beautiful, she's strong, fiercely independent, and has a great sense of humor. I could not ask for a more perfect daughter. She is approaching adulthood and I get weepy thinking about her going off to college soon but I know I must let her fly *sniff, sniff*. She would die if she knew I posted her pic on the web like this but oh well, she'll live lol. Happy birthday, TJH.. Mini Eccentric Diva! Mommy loves you so much!
