WOW What does 17 years bring??

17 years ago this was one of my favorite pictures. Two of the best influences on my life, and two of the strongest women you could ever meet. My wonderful Busha and of course my mom.I was so happy to have them both in my beautiful daughters life. Well Busha is no longer with us and Staci remembers little about her telling stories or giving life advice , but she does remember drawing for her and going to the farm to paint and play. My mom, grandma is still giving advice and spending time with her grand kids, Staci long ago was able to say I am taller grandma, but all of the grand kids look up to grandma as a woman of strong faith, family values, and a good card game here and there. 17 years later I have a new person to look up to one with a strong self esteem and getting stronger, one who knows where she wants to go in life, a young lady with a great faith, a supper friend( and she has many good friends) a girl who has been down and not let life keep her down, someone with a strong sense of family, someone who wants to hit the world head on, that's how I would describe my beautiful daughter Staci!!
Happy Birthday Staci Jo
go get 'em !
