Rachel Becomes Seventeen




Happy Birthday Rachel

You have become such a lovely young lady. Seventeen is such a nice age. This is your last year in High School and College looms ahead. Incredible to me that I once watched you emerge into this chaotic world. I know it's trite, but it really does seem like a very short time ago.

N
ow you are driving and seem so very grown up. I am so proud of all you have accomplished and I know you will continue to make me proud as the years go by, my bright pretty granddaughter. I love you and hope for a happy and successful life for you. I love you so very much.

Dear Rachel,

Happy Birthday to you!

Enjoy your teens and make the most of them. Study hard and you will be successful. Play hard and you will also be happy.

What a combination...GO FOR IT.

*Nancy - I think Rachel has the 'play hard' part down pat. ;-)

She will break hearts she will.

Darlene said...

*Rummuser - Hers will probably suffer a few tears in the process, too. That's the way life is.

Darlene - a special Happy Birthday to your granddaughter. I can relate to all the emotions.
I have two in college, one 3rd grade and one just beginning kindegarten (my baby). All stages.
Thinking of you - this is a beautiful day in my area.
