Today I am thankful for my daughter, Amaris. She is always so quick to give out hugs and "I Love You's" to make a day brighter. She is my baby girl - so full of emotion... as the tides of the vast ocean. She has grown so beautifully these 14 years, I often have to fight those mommy tears.... of pain, of pride and fears and love. But I am always thankful for you, my precious gift from above.
