Gratitude~Day 4

I am grateful for my daughters!
Since I was a young girl my life's dream was to be a Mom....it came true in May 1979 when my sweet girl Ashleigh was born!
She has always walked to the beat of her own drummer and is all the more interesting for it!
Her hair of many colors!
A very bright and curious girl she has grown into a lovely young woman!  
Ashleigh works for Google and lives in Cali now.
She is a wonderful Aunt and Sister
and a really amazing daughter and friend! 
I look forward to many more times together as we travel and enjoy our unique Mother/Daughter relationship!
(She's the one sending me to Paris!)

My younger daughter is Sara born in 1982
 She has a smile that can light up a room
a fun spirit and a wealth of talent
She and her now husband Blake formed a band called 'Gemini Cricket' and played in venues in Athens, Ga and other places...they had great fun!
She is a speech pathologist and works with deaf and hard of hearing children.
Married to her best friend Blake since Dec 2006!
She is the daughter most like me!
The Best Mom to my Grandson

A Joy to all who know her!

I thank God daily for the gift of my girls!

Hugs, 
Linda

Yes what a blessing it would be to have children and esp a daughter, and you have 2! My Mom and I were best friends, nothing like a Mother daughter bond.

Linda, You have two lovely daughters and isn't it wonderful that they are so very different in their own special ways!! I can see each of them in you!!
BTW- If you speech path. daughter ever wants to move this way - therer's always a need for speech paths in Cobb Co. - even working with the deaf! I teach D/HH here in Cobb and have 3 speech/Lang. teachers in my elem. school alone.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Actually - Let me correct myself -- I can YOU in each of them!

I am loving your Gratitude month! It reminds all of us to be thankful for the little and the big things.

I too have two daughters, as different as night and day, and I love everything about them! Being a mother is great, and looking forward to being a grandmother (someday...!)
