The person I look up to the most is my Daughter!

011She may only be 22 years old but she is one of the most amazing young people that I know, and I don’t say that just because I’m her Mom. If you knew my KC, and some of you reading this will, you would agree that she is a very strong young woman.

She had a rough start in life. She was 7 weeks early and very small. We never had a fear that we would lose her, because even at the start she knew how to fight.

There were 3 babies born in the family all within 10 days of each other. The doctors said, “Don’t compare her to them, she will be slow in her stages, remember she is 7 weeks behind them.”

Despite their warnings, she did crawl first, talk first, and walk first! She has always done well at things she has set her mind to do (and added her own flair).

She is 6 years younger then our other 3 children. They had each other most of the time where KC learned to stand strong and walk free. She was never afraid to try something new, like barking at cars. Her siblings talked her into that one. The only 16 year old girl I know who was thrilled to get a arc welder for her birthday.

KC was a strong willed child to say the least. When she moved to the coast it made her so mad that people treated her like a child as she looked to start her new life. Looking for apartments became a problem, she had worked for the money and saved enough, but people look at a 20 year old and think she will party and play too much. She worked two jobs and went to school, parties were never her style.

It took her until she was 22 to get her own place, but she never gave up on working hard, always having at least two jobs or working harder then anyone at the one she has.

25th anninversy 012 (2)She is hard headed, I say she gets that from her Dad, he would say it is from me. She has built a great group of friends that she is loyal and true with to the end. Her family is important to her, she loves her nieces and she will go out of her way to make sure her mommy is taken care of when she hears I’m needy in some way.

The world will tell you that there is no hope in our youth, I have to say, “Not in this young lady.” With God as her guide she will go far. She knows what she is working for and is not afraid to stand up for her beliefs.

KC is not afraid to tell any young guy right off the bat, “I don’t play like that!” She stands her ground and respects herself and has found the guy that respects her too.

It is important to be true to yourself. In all things KC knows what she wants and is willing to work and wait. She is my daughter, but she is someone that I look up to!

I wish I had been more like her at her age.

    I’ve said it from the beginning, KC is a remarkable young woman. She is so much more together than I was at her age. She is smart, responsible, loyal and incredibly loving. She has a nurturing spirit that is far beyond her years. Motherly. I love having her as a friend, and I am so grateful to have her in my life.
