My daughter is an amazing woman. She has always been career driven and is currently in an exciting position at the Department of Education for the State of Arizona. However, I have watched all that change since Lauren was born in April. My daughter was born to be a mom. I enjoy watching as she nurtures, plays with and loves this little being.
One of my most prized posessions is a necklace Jennifer bought for me when she was in middle school. It is a gold filigree heart that reads mommy. She saw it in Kmart in August and told my husband he had to get it for me for Christmas. So he did. I wore that every day since until April 1st when Lauren was born. Then I gifted it to my daughter who now proudly wears it. I knew she would be a wonderful mom but the bond she and her daughter have is truly special. I hope it will always be like the one my daughter and I have.
Of course, Lauren loves to play with the necklace too!
