A 12th birthday for my daughter.

 Monday was my daughter's
12th birthday and we had a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating her last year of true childhood.  Next year, 13--wow, how does it go so quickly?

As I watch her grow into her preteen years--expanding her horizons at school, pushing herself to move up in her dance class that she loves so much, accepting changes in her world--she humbles me.  She has grace beyond her years, determination to make things happen, and a beautiful eye for seeing 'something in everything'. 

I love the person that she is and I'm so honored to have been gifted this spirit from the universe. 

Motherhood, with her by my side, has been my greatest gift.  I look forward to each new chapter while slightly nostalgic for the one we are leaving behind.

Happy Birthday Somerset,
here's to a great
12th year!
