Thankful Thursday (My Mini Me)

I was a young mom.  I know I don't do everything right, I think that's impossible...I think that what is right for one kid, might not be right for the next.  We're all different and that's great. It's what makes the world interesting.  Sometimes though I sit here and think "I really hope I'm not screwing my kids up for life."  That's normal right? 

I saw this e-card on Facebook and laughed out loud. Yes, I LOL’d. This is my life. There are times where I’ll reprimand my daughter for something and she’ll say “what would you have done?” Then I stand there with a dumb look on my face. Touch√©.

I have what many of our friends and family call a “mini-me” but she is so much more than that. She is the very best parts of me….all the good and…well, yes some of the bad too. She has my temper and although it’s been known to get me in trouble sometimes she is much better at controlling it then I have ever been. She is strong willed but not to a fault. I don’t ever have to worry about her getting taken advantage of. She has her own voice and she knows how to use it. She will stand up for herself and others if she needs to. She has my sense of humor, that not everyone gets. She works hard for what she wants. She understands, even at 13, that the best things in life are earned. She’s not always nice, but she isn’t ever hurtful. She may never be Homecoming Queen but Miss Congeniality…maybe. :)

My B turned 13 last Friday.  I still can't believe I have a teenager.  I am so very thankful for this little girl who came into our lives at the most perfect moment. This precious gift who, during the worst time in my life, gave me something to hold on to.  I love you B!

Until next time.....ADIOS!


  1. That is such a special post! She is the incredible young lady that she is because she has you to emulate! I may need to call you about how to get my slaughter back on track. She's kind of a hot mess right now! :/

  2. Aww Happy Birthday to her! I can't believe you have a teenager, either ;) It also sounds like you a great mom!

  3. I am a youth group leader at church for the 12 and 13 year old girls. I LOVE that age!


I LOVE reading your thoughts!! :)
