She couldn’t wait for this day to come. She so badly wanted to be a “real” teenager.
We would tell her often not to wish her youth away and that before she knew it she would be 16 than 18 than 25 and so on. She didn’t care, she just wanted to be older and being called a teenager was what she wanted most.
Today Abigail is finally a teenager and from everything we saw from her she would have been the most amazing teenager. Yes, I know that we would have our fair share of disagreements and challenges ~ it wouldn’t have all been perfect, but watching Abigail come into herself her last few months here on earth I have no doubt in my mind the type of young lady she was becoming.
She was confident, funny, beautiful in every way possible, wise beyond her years and she was lovely ~ so lovely.
I was only in her life for a short time but, as we often said, it felt like we had always been together. She taught me so much about being a mom and, even when I was struggling trying to figure it all out, she always had a way of bringing a beautiful light into every situation ~ even when she was mad at me for asking her to do her homework.
Abigail, you are my hero in so many ways and I am so blessed to call you my daughter. I love you more than words could possibly say and I miss you so much.
Milkshakes and PG-13 movies for you today ~ I know you are smiling in Heaven because you’ve already seen a lot of PG-13 movies and you would be upping the ante to rated R.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful teenager ~ you are and will always be a beautiful light in this world.
