Today is my first daughter's birthday. She turned 13. It is so odd to think that 13 years ago I was holding that precious girl in my arms. She is not here with me today. It is the first time that I have not seen her on her birthday. But she is getting older and she chose to go out of town on her birthday. She is having a great time in California and even though I miss her terribly I know this is what she wanted. So my mother is visiting me. She came down to help me catch up on some paperwork that I just couldn't handle on my own. We have just ordered out for dinner and we are enjoying just talking and catching up. My husband is hanging out with us and we are having a good time. Sometimes just spending time with the ones you love can provide you with comfort. :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
