It is hard to have a child like this sometimes. When they are small and we have so much control over their lives----we tend to complain about how difficult it is to do everything for them, but when they are gone, and we sometimes don't even know where they are----it is hard----and sometimes it hurts a bit that you can't have them near. It sometimes makes you feel that they don't care anymore.
Maryn was a darling baby, a beautiful little girl, and my little sweetheart. She is my artist, singer, super creative, alternative, rebellious, and was always pushing my envelope----but I love her just the same! That's what we do as mothers----we love our children with no strings attached.
There are so many things that I love about Maryn:
I love how she is unique----has always been---definitely does her own thing!
I love how she gets along with people of all ages. She has such a great spirit about her----and people respond to that.
I love her artistic talents. She is BRILLIANT in her artwork, and even supercedes my talent....
I love how she loves to sing. She writes music, sings constantly and performs by herself or with different bands. She also taught herself to play guitar.
I love that she loves animals. She has adopted two cats, and she takes care of them so well----even feeding them when she doesn't have any money for her own food.
I love her intelligence. She is really smart and reads a lot, and definitely forms her own opinion about things----and is NOT afraid to voice them!
I love her hugs----she has the BEST hugs in the world!!! Big, long, squeezy ones.....my favorite!
I love her sense of humor----she is crazy and so fun when we get together----acting out and well....just being one of us!
I love her laugh....she always laughs at the antics I pull----I tend to get crazy sometime, and Maryn is always the first one to get everyone going with her infectious laugh!
I love her free spirit, but sometimes I detest it, as she can't stay in one place for long, and hasn't really decided what she wants to do.....well, she kind of gets that from me, as I STILL haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up! But I worry about her and just want her to be happy----no matter what she decides to do.
Here's that beautiful face....(Maryn, a few years ago)
....and her fun side!
....and loves to goof around while we are shooting.
Love this smile....
Happy Birthday, Minnie!
