Happy Birthday to the Newest Teenager!

It's so hard to believe it has been thirteen years since my youngest daughter gave birth, to her daughter.

 Because her Mommy is a diabetic, she was an 8lb 9oz preemie. This sweet baby, is the joy of my daughter's life and mine.

She has celebrated firsts:

She grew:

..... celebrated holiday's

..she was silly,

..and serious

..she learned

....and grew into a beautiful young woman,

..who is loved by all,

To my Sweet Angel on her thirteenth birthday,

I hope you always remember how much you are loved.
I hope you always remember to champion for the underdog.
I hope you laugh more than you cry.
I hope you love, not hate.
I hope you always look for the good in other's.
I hope you always reach for the star's because, with hard work, anything is possible.
I hope you always turn to your family if you have a problem, knowing we will always be here for you.
I hope you laugh at yourself when you are not perfect. Laughter can be the best medicine in life.
I hope " I am Sorry" rolls easily off your tongue.
I hope you are always a leader, not a follower. You know what is right, stick with your morals and   convictions, do not let peers sway you.
I hope you never lose the essence of you..the wonderful you!
I hope you realize that people are more important than things.
I hope you make a difference in this world and touch many hearts. I know you will!

I hope you know how much we love you,

Nana and Grandpa Bill
