Congratulations and Expectations~

My youngest daughter made the Varsity Volleyball team at her high school for the 3rd consecutive year on Friday (she will be a Junior this year).  While we celebrate her achievements, she knows they come with expectations.  Below is something we have taught our girls to live by...

Little Eyes Upon You

There are little eyes upon you

and they're watching night and day.

There are little ears that quickly

take in every word you say.

There are little hands all eager

to do anything you do;

And a little girl who's dreaming

of the day she'll be like you.

You're the little angel's idol,

you're the wisest of the wise.

In her little mind about you

no suspicions ever rise.

She believes in you devoutly,

holds all you say and do;

She will say and do, in your way

when she's grown up just like you.

There's a wide-eyed little girl

who believes you're always right;

and her eyes are always opened,

and she watches day and night.

You are setting an example

every day in all you do;

For the little girl who's waiting

to grow up to be like you.

Congratulations we are extremely proud of your accomplishments.  But even more so, we are extremely proud of the young lady you have become!

Love, Mom, Dad, Sissy and the Dog Crew

Hi Lauren,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my hurricanes! If you can't find any at the dollar store, check a goodwill or thriftstore; you can use just about any type of tall glass container and candle stick!
