Wow!  Am I really old enough to have a 17 year old?!!!  I must be because Naomi is actually and officially 17 today!  It truly is a special memory~ my first born being handed to me by my sweet husband as he tells me, "It's a girl!" with tears flowing from his eyes.

Naomi is a blessing, I am so thankful for her!  She is a gift from God!  Her name means, "Pleasant" and she is a very pleasant young woman.  Young woman...yes, I said it, she is a young WOMAN!!!  When did this happen?  Right before my very eyes...and yes, it makes me both sad and thrilled ~a weird mixture of emotion. It has blessed my soul to see who and what she is becoming!  She loves the Lord with her whole being.  She honors the Lord with her actions, attitudes, and words.  She loves others and shows it everyday.  She honors her father and her mother.  She is becoming a Proverbs 31 woman.  She is one of my very best friends.  I love to spend time with her!!

She asked for waffles for breakfast (Yummy! Thank You for choosing my favorite!)  They actually became brunch as it takes a very long time to make them for 19 people!!  For dinner, she will be going with her dad and mom to Fondi's pizzeria for a fun date!  So, yes, I AM old enough to have a 17 year old...barely!! ;-)
My baby girl!
