I think the only way to describe the feeling of watching your oldest daughter get ready for her first dance and her graduation is amazement! I was also proud and excited and sad, but mostly amazed. I could remember holding her when she was so small, and now I was curling her hair and putting on her makeup. I can’t think of a better word than amazed, amazed by her growth, by her excitement, by her nervousness, and mine and amazed by her beauty. Anja, I am so proud of you, and I can’t wait for you to continue amazing me for so many years to come. Mommy loves you!
