Stacey!

I have taken a few days leave and will not be around for the next week.  As you know, Friday is Stacey's 21st so I thought I would do a little tribute to my daughter today!

My beautiful little girl, was born on the 24th April 1988 at 08h55.  She was quite a surprise as I was CONVINCED that I was going to have a son!  What a wonderful surprise she was and what a pleasure she has always been!

From the moment she took her first steps she has brought me nothing but pleasure.  She was my little shadow and followed me all over!  I was teaching in those days and she used to come to school with me in the afternoons when I had my extra-mural activities.  The boys loved her and she took great delight in running after them, especailly when they went up to the tuck shop for a sweetie!
That dear little face with thos big blue eyes, will always make me smile!
From fishing with her "brothers" Damian and Jarred to being Santa's helper at a Round Table Xmas party, she has always been my pride and joy.
Well, she's all grown up now and I know that we have a lot of living and loving to look forward too! 
Thank you Stacey for making me so proud!  Thank for our unconditional, forever kind of love!

While I was reading through I was wondering what my little girl would look like when she grows up. I want to do a tribute like this one day when she turnes 21.

My memory has not been up to scratch because of a recent event in my life, but I called Wayne to see the picture of Stacey as the Flower Girl and Uncle Collins Wedding. For some reason that day is so fresh in my mind even though I was so young ! I remember Stacey running up and down, playing with the water, there must have been a little pond or something. Strange ey ? !!!! Looking forward to seeing you good ppl on Friday. Have a good week off and don't stress too much !!!! Nice post this week !!!!!!!!
