Wow, baby!! 17 Years old! I honestly don’t know how it happened!! It doesn’t feel like 17 years have passed…and yet they did just the same. You are growing up to be such an amazing young Woman! I have been binge watching home videos lately and it has been so fun to watch you grow through the years. From being a snuggly baby to a school aged child with lots of imagination and ideas, (and a Minnie Mouse Voice). Then on to middle school, where you formed opinions about how the world is and what it looks like to you. And now, my bright shining star! You are such a wonderful, brilliant, hysterical, easy-going, and unique person. I am glad every single day that you are my Daughter. It has been a true pleasure to watch you grow to this point in your life. We all know there have been bumps in the road along the way…but the bumps are real life and getting over them is what makes us better people. You have so many amazing experiences in front of you. In just one more year, you will graduate high school and move on to the next phase in your life. This is a scary time for teenagers…there is so much unknown. But you don’t need to be afraid! Trust in yourself to know what is the right thing to do (you are very smart and thoughtful), try lots of things (you will find what you love when you try lots of different things), don’t be afraid to fail (we learn our best lessons by making mistakes) and know that no matter what, I will ALWAYS be here for you if you need me. I am never too busy, or too anything, to not be here for you. And you could never do anything that changes the way that I feel about you. I am ALWAYS yours! ALWAYS! I LOVE you and cannot wait to see what the future holds for you! I know you will be amazing at whatever you decide to do! So keep working on figuring out who you are. So far, the Woman you are becoming is amazing…I can’t wait to see what the future holds! I LOVE YOU! Happy Birthday Morgan!!
