Am I ready for this???

In about 2 weeks my beautiful baby girl will be turning 16. Am I ready for this? I keep asking myself this over and over. Still no answer. Sometimes I look at her and it's hard for me to believe that the beautiful young lady that is there is the same beautiful baby girl I held in my arms just 16 short years earlier. Where did it all go?

I can remember when I couldn't wait for her to "grow up". Now I want her to stop. To give me just a few more years. But I know that I can't stop time and I know that she is going to grow up and move away no matter how bad I wish it away. So am I ready for this? NO, not at the very least. But can I deal with it? Sure, after all, my mother did the same thing.

So in closing, I'm very proud of the wonderful person that she has become and look forward to watching her grow into a beautiful and responsible adult.
