Today is my daughter’s birthday. A special day for her, but in the beginning, it was a very special day for her father and me.
Amanda was the first child born to us. She was healthy and happy and amazingly beautiful! We both immediately fell in love with our girl.
Amanda made me a mother and as I took care of her I realized that as each day went by, she was teaching me so much. It continues to this day.
She was a bright and alert baby, who seemed to grow up very quickly. Always sweet and loving, yet determined to set the world on fire.
Whatever she sets her mind to, she accomplishes, but perhaps her greatest accomplishment is the fact that she is a wonderful mother to her two kids and their 2 dogs and a cat!
I am so proud of the woman she has become. She is a self-made woman who continues to tackle challenges that many would run from.
So on this, special birthday, I wish her, good health, much happiness, and the fulfillment of all her dreams.
I love you so much, Amanda!
