Today is Talia's 18th Birthday. Seems like only yesterday we went to the hospital and brought home our brown-eyed girl. She has had a challenging life to date because of health issues, but has overcome huge obstacles. She is definitely stronger because of the adversity she has endured.
How does one describe Talia? She has the most compassionate heart of any person I know. She sees folks for what they are....all in need of love. She gives of herself freely. Her only fault? She lets folks take advantage of her. That is why she is blessed to have 7 siblings who don't let anyone walk all over her.
Today I will just walk around with MY head held high............why? Because I am privileged to be a part of her wonderful life.
Happy Birthday Talia..........I sure love you sweetie!
EDIT: I forgot. We have a tradition at our house that on the day of your birthday you get breakfast in bed. You choose what you want I fix it......but then you get to choose who gets to be your personal slave for that day. Talia chose Nik cause he is always laying crap on her.
