My Joy

The new postage stamp

The other night my daughter and I had a photo shoot. She wanted to take some pics to send to a friend named Joey. I say "friend" because it's not official, but any day now I know they will be an item. He told her on the phone that he wants to see her when he asks her out because he thinks it is better to ask in person than over the phone or internet. Very true...and very nice. I like it.

My God, I love this girl.

My daughter met this young gentleman on Thanksgiving weekend. She went to a family event and he was there like a star that had fallen from the sky ...completely unexpected. She was HIGHLY relieved to find out that he isn't family and they have been chattering on the phone and internet non-stop since. She has a private MySpace page where only the people that she invites can access her profile. I didn't want the profile to be public after hearing the horror stories in the news and initially assisted her in setting it up.

She picked out this t-shirt and it totally fits her personality and soul.

She constantly gets the laptop and runs to me to show me the new MySpace messages she receives from friends and Joey. It is wonderful that she does this because I can completely know what is going on in her life and with this boy. I can tell that he is a gentleman and I like what I see so far.

When I was her age I was ultra-secretive. If MySpace existed then I would have NEVER shown my parents ANY message. My daughter is completely unlike me in this regard and I am very thankful. I must have driven my parents nuts.

This is her expression when I said the name Joey....(such a googly-eyed girl) lol

She is my heart, my joy, my life, and my lovely daughter. I love her to bits.

Oh, and the tree isn't up yet...hopefully tomorrow.

I so feel the same way.. struggling from a depression myself, one thing has kept me going.. My beautiful, lovely children. The joy, love and comfort they give me is priceless, and the one positive thing in times of despair..

You definitely have a beautiful (and smart, judging by your other posts) daughter, the bond you two share is really a treasure!

My child really has made me so much more determined to just keep going on those low days (which I do still have despite considering myself on top of things). Thank goodness for that level of love. Your daughter is gorgeous - that hair of hers...she must be the envy of her friends.

Lovely photos. Tell her she is beautiful - all girls need to know that.

For your daughter to have such a loving, trusting bond with you, you must've have been a pretty amazing mother to her all these years.

I hope everything goes well for her and Joey :)

Best Wishes,

PS: I hope you finally have the tree up by now!

She is really great. I hope you keep being close. :)

And Joey sounds like a dream; may it all end in a beautiful thing.

I don't have children (and not planning to have one anytime soon) but I guess I feel almost the same --- I say almost the same since there's no way it would equal a mother-and-child relationship --- about my almost-siblings / cousins. I just can't believe they like me as much as they do, even after seeing all the imperfect stuff.

It's so wonderful having lovely people in our lives.
