Happy 18th Birthday to my sweet Candace

Happy 18th Birthday to my sweet daughter, Candace. 
I have so much I want to say, but sometimes I think too many words aren't  necessary. Candace, I LOVE you more than you will ever know. You have made me so proud to be your mom and I am excited to watch as your book of life gets filled with experiences, trials, and tribulations. I will be here when you need an ear when you are mad or aggravated. I will be here when you need a shoulder when it seems nothing is going as planned. I will be here when you need to tell someone some corny pick up line. The jist is simple.. I will ALWAYS be here. God helped me along the way and I trust that you will keep your faith in Him and he will help you as well.  ( be sure to scroll to the bottom to see some photos of Candace growing up. They truly show her bubbly personality)
This song is for you Candace.
