My baby turns 20!!!

Today my beautiful girl turns 20!!! I am forever more teenagers...until my grandbabies get there:)

How much you have grown since you came into our lives. How much you have touched and changed our lives. I would never trade my years with you for anything in the world.

Kobus took this pic of Bianca this morning. I am so proud of my beautiful daughter.
This is my message to her today...the author is unknown:

Be strong. Be intelligent. Smile.
Know that beauty has everything to do with how you feel about yourself
and nothing to do with looks or other people's opinions.
Never do anything just because everyone else is if you believe it's wrong.
Always be true to yourself.
Expect the best from life and that's what you'll get.
Learn from your mistakes and failures.
Believe in magic and wish on stars.
Love and trust and be compassionate.
Make faces. Play in mud puddles. Take bubble baths.
Turn off all the lights and watch lightening storms.
Dance, laugh, cry, and sing when you want to.
Read everything you can get your hands on.
Stand up for what is right especially if you stand alone.
Don't allow yourself or people around you to tolerate prejudices of any kind.
Don't be afraid to try something new.
Do something daring at least once a week.
Spin in circles and roll down hills.
Pet puppies, hold kittens, and talk to babies.
Take afternoon naps.
Stay up to watch the sunrise.
Never apologize for being a woman or for being yourself.
Never forget that I love you more than any other person in the world,
no matter how far apart we are you will always be my daughter.
