What can I say about her ?
If she had been my first child, I may not have had any more! She challenged my parenting skills and gave me a lot more compassion for others with difficult to handle children!
She went through the terrible two's and every form of teenage rebellion by the age of five and got all the kinks out of her system early. She is a sweet, loving and sensitive daughter and is very special indeed!
As a youngster, she noticed every detail. (she still does!) She was fascinated by little insects.
To this day she recalls events and time with an accuracy that amazes me. She has an artistic gift and translates her feelings and observations into her work.
Happy Birthday Becka. You are a special gift indeed!

Wow, that's really great art! Is she pursuing an art or design profession? It looks to me like the stuff of success.ReplyDelete
Daughters are so special--our daughter, our second child, fits the definition you gave: "If she had been my first child. . ." But now I can't imagine not having her wonderful presence in this world!ReplyDelete
Hope your celebration of your daughter's birthday is grand--and hers too!
I love my cousin Becka, and her mom of course! And the love them share for each others, it is a beautiful thing to see. :) Have a great day you two!ReplyDelete
What a grand tribute and a treasure to keep in your lifetime scrapbook. It sings with your warmth.ReplyDelete
Mothers and Daughters are so special. Becka's work is very expressive and interesting! She's heading toward a profession in the arts?ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday, Becka! You're legal now!

Happy belated Birthday to Becka!! Her artwork is awesome!ReplyDelete
You and I are "blessed" with special daughters. Two months apart but almost like sisters at times. But she is a reflection of her parent's love and her mother's latent talent.ReplyDelete
See a part of yourself in her too.
I am a proud uncle by proxy
Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. Rebecca appreciated them so much. She is doing some free lance work now as she decides what to do in the future. Graphic design programs at colleges here have many more applicants than spaces.ReplyDelete
SLB- we really are blessed with special daughters.
Happy belated birthday, Becka. I love the grasshopper drawing!ReplyDelete
