Oh...Are you Abby's mom?

These few words are sometime a little nerv racking for a mother to hear, and I must admit I was a little nervous....but was pleasantly surprised. I was out taking goodies to a neighbor that moved into the cul de sac this summer whom I am embarrassed to say, I had never officially met. We wave, but tonight I asked if she was home to introduce myself.

After a little chit chat, she asked which house we lived in, after I told her she said "Oh are you Abby's mom?" I said I was, and this lady proceeded to tell me what a ray of sunshine my little girl is, and that she would always tease her husband and inquire if his "girlfriend" had been over that day. :) What a joy she is."

Abby I want you to know how proud I am to be your mom, and what a great lesson you have taught me. These people have been here for months, and I have not taken the time to introduce myself, but YOU did as they hopped out of the moving truck. I hope that we can instill the self confidence that you need to continue these good works even as you get older. I love you Princess!
