I have learned a lot over the course of my life and all that I have been through. The most important thing in life is love and family. I say it a lot but my girls are my life. I have had many struggles lately. Life gets hard sometimes. It gets overwhelming even. It's not easy raising teenagers. It's not easy going through changes in life.
My oldest daughter turned 18 and she has left home. My heart aches for her. I want to help her. I want to give her the world but I know there is so much she'll need to learn on her own. I know what's in store. I would love to protect her from it all but I can't. I shouldn't. Hard times build you up. They make you stronger. I know I am stronger though some days I don't feel like it. Some things haven't changed me for the better. I have flaws. Those things have made me evolve though. I try to be a good mom. I make mistakes. Each day I will keep trying to be better. Once you think you're the best, you can no longer improve. I'll keep working on it. Oh and Gabbi is no longer allergic to milk!!!! Yay!!!
