Santanna was 12 here. She is almost 15 now.
The teen years are difficult for girls and moms.
The other day we were driving through town.
We saw a new building they were working on.
Santanna said in an exasperated voice
"what are they building there now?"
I said, " I think its an elderly persons facility".
She said "Oh, that's terrible."
I said, "well the town needs them and I will probably end up in one,
one day. I think they are quite nice."
My sweet daughter then looks at me and says
"Oh no you won't !! You are staying right at home.
'I' will take care of you"
I just thought at that moment........
WOW that's my sweet girl, even with all the teen angst,
she really is kind, caring and not as distant
as she would like me to think she is.
Santanna you are my love child, my heart
I want you to know, I love you best
