Rahel and I went with Katie to have her senior pictures taken yesterday evening. We had scheduled an hour sitting, but once we got there, the photographer worked with us for 3 hours! She loved working with Katie and we had a good time. Am I allowed to say I have the most beautiful daughter in the world? I love her so much!
We were able to see some of the pictures in the camera; but we’ll have the proofs in a week or so. I can’t wait to show them off to you all.
All weekend long, whenever I saw a young girl, I thought of Katie. On Sunday evening I was watching a little girl as she jumped into her father’s arms. I cried. I literally cried right there in the restaurant! Dwayne asked if I were OK … it’s not really sadness that makes me cry. It’s more pride and gratitude and love. I can not believe, sometimes, how blessed I’ve been having Katie as a daughter. She has been a joy just about every step of the way. Now, as I get ready to send her off … more than anything, I feel blessed to have been chosen as her mom.
