Twenty-four years ago this is who God blessed me with:
Samantha June Lemay
All 9 lbs 7 ounces of pure joy!
She loved her thumb and her books....for many, many years.
I pretty sure she finally gave up the thumb
Two years later, God sent her a best friend for life! I remember 6 months after her sister was born she asked: "How long is she staying?"
I think she is glad she stayed!
She was destined to become a cosmetologist....Just look at that hair at 2 years old
I have been known to say that if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have signed up for parenthood.
That is a lie!
I have experienced more emotions in the past 24 years being a mom then I ever thought possible.....immense joy, heartache, anticipation, frustration, pride, anger, happiness, weariness but mostly a LOVE so strong that sometimes it scares me.
Yea, they grow up and actually want to leave (yes, I know it's shocking).
When I stand there and cry with my heart breaking, they just smile, wave and
run walk away.
After 3 years and 3 children leaving, I've finally come to realize that they really don't have a hard time moving on. I try to remember how I felt....I was excited, scared, but ready to go and I rarely called my mom too!
So I am learning to accept what is. I still don't like it, but I am accepting it.
I didn't know on April 13, 1987 that the gift of this daughter would become one of my most precious gifts ever!
She has become a beautiful woman, inside and out!
I love you Sampy-June!
