Good Morning

Good Morning All!  I have nothing to post today, I did yesterday but was too busy at work to write it and it slipped off of my lips...I am off 2morrow getting my daughter ready for prom :)  So I am going to repost a poem I wrote about her going to Homecoming this year...Have a great and blessed weekend!

Homecoming

Rolling her long silky brown hair
Applying make up to prepare

For her junior homecoming
Looking at the woman she is becoming

Her dress hugging her curves
Hoping her future boyfriend treats her as she deserves

Her first time wearing heels
Knowing its excitement that she feels

Posing as a grown woman with such innocence
The young child I am watching transform I reminisce

She is preparing for the world not knowing all its horror
She will make mistakes as she explores

I am there to help her learn and teach her how to get back on her feet
Overcoming lies and deceit

She has only exprienced her first heartbreak
Discovering so called friends are fake

So much more to learn
Knowing she is smart and will make a man earn

His right to her heart
Giving her strength to overcome if or when they grow apart

It seems like only yesterday I was changing her diapers
Now its the tears falling down her cheecks I wipe

Wishing her more success than I experienced
Praying my mistakes have influenced

Her future decisions
I am sure that her life will be more than I can currently envision

My precious baby is no longer a child
I sent her off to her dance and within I smiled
