Twenty-five years ago I looked upon your beautiful face for the first time.
And I watched you become a beautiful baby of my very own.
And you changed into a toddler (I'm your age in this photo).
And then to my little girl.
Then you turned 13 and discovered boys (and grew boobies- eekkk).
You and Daniel have an incredible bond. That was a fun ski trip!
Before I knew it, high school graduation.
And you turned 20 - no longer a teenager or my little girl.
And then I heard -"Mom, I met this guy I really like a lot!"
And, like turned to true love.
And you made your career dreams come true with two degrees from the U of A.
And, you have a beautiful smile and more beautiful soul.
I feel so blessed to be your mother.
Here's to the next 25 years - Happy Birthday Emily!
