Just look at her. Isn't she beautiful. I know it's hard to believe, but she is 14 years old. She is my daughter, my youngest child, Alex, and this weekend she graduated from the 8th grade.
As all you moms out there know, there is no love like the love you have for your child. Nothing even comes close. The pride you feel in your heart for them is beyond compare. Children truly are a gift from God.
So today, I give thanks for my beautiful daughter. I am so blessed that God sent her to me. I ask that you join me in praying for God's will in her life. And pray that she will always put her trust in Him.
Alex, until you hold your own child in your arms you can't understand how very much I love you and how proud I am of you.
