happy birthday, Katie

My little girl ... is no longer a little girl.
Katie turns 22 today.
We went through some rough times.
I didn't understand her, and she resisted me.
There were nights I cried over our relationship and thought I was a horrible mother.
But look at her now.
Pleasant and poised and beautiful.
We are good friends and love being together.

She has a heart of gold

And friends of silver.

And a lifetime ahead full of promise as she marches to her own drummer. 
Katie will live life in her very special way.
How honored I am to step back and watch.

Happy birthday, Katie!
I love you so very much.
