Simple Things Sunday - Daughters

Sunday, April 29, 2012

 Boy have I been a slack blogger lately. It's not that I have been lazy, or off galavanting around on vacation, I promise. I have just been crazy busy. I have finally caught up on all of the Girl Scout and soccer photos that I needed to process so I can check that off my list.  And I even managed to clean out some of the kids' drawers and work my way down to one load of laundry.Yea! Now I just need to catch up on blog posts and visiting all you fabulous peeps and I'll be all good.

My simple thing for today is being thankful for daughters who are sweet and girly. I know the day is coming when she'll spend a lot more time with her friends than she will with me. But, I hope we will always maintain a close bond and that she will still want to do our nails together, to help me bake and go with me on shopping errands.  And that she'll feel comfortable enough to confide in me and lean on me when she needs to.

Awww. Sweet photos. I think about the same thing - the days when I'll no longer be her "best friend" and she'll be busy with other things. Reminds us to soak up these special years even more! Thanks for sharing!

In my daughter's case, there was a natural need for her to pull away a little bit during the HS years, but by Senior year she was back and ever since then, we've had the wonderful relationship we share now. I hope you have the same thing with your beautiful little girl!
