I realize entirely too often that times goes by way too fast, especially those moments you try to hold on to.
No she's not biologically mine, but I claim her just the same. I didn't give birth to her, but I have helped raise her. She doesn't call me mom, but I am influencing her.
I am talking about my beautiful niece Kelsey. She graduated from the 8th grade today!
I hope that one day, she will be able to say the same about me. That I was involved in so many of her memories - good, bad, boys, friends, happiness, heartache, success, & failure.
I am proud of the young lady she is becoming! And I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!
