Back-to-school Blues...

for me!! School has started back, and my little one is in jr. high school!

Every year when school starts, I go through a "blue" phase.....I guess I always find it hard to let go, especially after a wonderful summer where we spend so much time together. And, wow, Kenzie has certainly blossomed the past few months. A new hair cut and contacts, along with a newly found confidence, and she seems to have matured not just a couple of months, but a couple of years! I'm pretty sure it was only yesterday that she was in kindergarten!

So, Kenzie, here's to a great year! I love you, and I pray that you will learn, grow, laugh, make new friends, study hard, pick yourself back up when you fall, determine to do right, have fun, trust God, try your best ... and continue to be just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside!

"...And clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God." I Peter 3:4

Wow, she does suddenly look quite grown up...what wonderful and exciting things await. Considering the special relationship you and Kenzie share...it's no wonder you have a bit of the blues. ; ) Such a lovely young lady.

Thank you for your sweet wishes for our anniversary. As to Tom being quite the catch...I couldn't agree more! ; )

Love & blessings,
