For Emily Michelle



Dearest Emily,
Today is a wonderful moment for me as your mother. You called me late last night to tell me that your engaged. How wonderful that makes me feel. Its almost like it is happening to me thats how close I feel to you. We have a wonderfully close relationship that I cherish everyday. You have become a beautiful and talented young woman and to watch you grow into an adult is something I will cherish for years. My memories of you are etched in my mind so clearly that I can recall conversations and emotions of these memories. I still can picture you clearly in my mind, your birth, you at 2 years old sitting in a chair at the hairdressers getting your first haircut, your first recital, your first loose tooth, your first homerun.....I could go on and on. I am thankful for you, Emily Michelle, my beautiful daughter, a woman now and starting your own life with the love of your life. I wish you so much happiness, joy and love and I know this new path your taking will be everlasting. I love you dearly, Mom
