Sweet Sixteen

Today is the day. The day my Madison has looked forward to for so very long. Today is her Sweet Sixteen. How I love this girl! She is my firstborn. She is the first person on this planet to ever call me the one word I longed to hear...Mom. She made me the one thing,  next to a loving wife,  that I longed to be...a mother. She is everything a mother would wish, funny, loving, respectful.
She is everything I wish to be...confident, creative, determined. She is our Madison Marie...and this is for her...
