Senior Pictures

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.
