Grown Up Girl

I am not sure where the years have gone but I do know that I wouldn't trade being this girl's Mom for anything.

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And if I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky

I'll have tears as you take off...
But I'll cheer as you fly!!

Amazing photos and amazing daughter, sister and friend. That is the exact same song I put in Aleah's yearbook when she graduated. It really speaks what the heart feels.

What a sweet post!!! The words to that song just fit perfect. The pictures were just beautiful. She is a very photogenic girl. Did you spend her college fund purchasing pictures? :) I have a lump in my throat because Preston isn't far behind. If my kids will jump on my pro-LU bandwagon, Preston would be at LU the same time as Shay. She would be a jr. or senior while he is a freshman. We could be over-the-top mothers together. HA!
