Remember when

Dear Leslie,
Remember when I left you at Gatewood for the first time in Ms. Nancy's class and you cried? I told you it was going to be Ok and you would love it....and you did.

Remember when you were in first grade and you hated to read and you threw the book on the floor and cried? I told you that one day you would love to read and that reading would take you to places you have never been.  Now you love to read even if you stay up until 2am doing it.

Remember when you begged me to buy you a disposable camera and you would take all the pictures up in one afternoon?  I told you one day you would be the world's best photographer......and you are on your way.

Remember when school started this year and you cried and said there was no way you could make it?  I told you that you were a strong smart woman and it was time to act like it.  You did and graduated with honors.

Remember this spring when you text me a picture of your ACT scores and then called me to tell me you were going to West Georgia?  I told you that college would be some of the best years of your life........and they will be.

I love you sweet girl. You have made me very proud.
