Thankful Thursday: Dear Daughters

One of my greatest blessings is that of being a mother.  I have two wonderful sons, but since today's letter is D, I will be sharing some of the cutest baby pictures ever . . . of my four Dear Daughters:

DD2


DD3


DD4


Aren't they the most beautiful baby girls ever?  Can you tell that they are sisters?   They all grew into equally beautiful little girls, and I'm not at all biased.  I'm only their Mom!

Now my Dear Daughters are nearly all adults, and they are my very best friends.  They keep me laughing.  They bring home books for me to read and movies for me to watch, and gently chide me when I fall asleep before the movies are over.  They have taught me how to text and how to blog and the finer points of Microsoft Office.   They patiently explain how to switch from the TV to the DVD player.  (over and over again.)  They go shopping with me.  They eat my cooking without complaining.  (most of the time)  The make me happy!  I also have a wonderful Dear Daughter In Law who is the perfect match for DS2.  Though we don't see her quite as often, I'm very grateful to claim her as a daughter too.  Unfortunately, I don't have a baby picture of her to share . . .

DD2 and DD3 are away at school right now, and DD1 and DD4 both have plans to leave in the next few months.  I definitely don't want to hold my dear daughters back from living their own lives and accomplishing great things, but I know that I will miss them, and hope that soon they will all end up living close by again.  I love my dear daughters!
