A Birthday Card For My Mini Me

   My mini me is turning 13 in a few days...sigh...
I feel like it was just yesterday they were placing her in my arms.

This is the birthday card I made for Linaya. 
My first Gorjuss Girl card. 

So, I know a lot of people call their kids mini mes, but Linaya truly is a lot like me. It's kinda funny. When she answers my phone people think she is me. Everyone tells her she looks like me. 
She's a complete airhead like me! Whenever I make some kind of comment about that or am like WOW Naya REALLY!?! because of something she does she says...
 "I get it from you mom!" or "Yep! I'm just like you mom!"
Sometimes she will come home from school and I'll be singing a song...she will walk through the door with that same song stuck in her head.

The thing I love most is how proud she is when people tell her how much she is like me.
At her age I would have been disgusted if someone told me I was just like my mom...but not her. 
I hope she will always feel proud to be like me. 

Linaya Marie, you are an amazing young lady. You are a great example to those around you. Keep your head held high Love. You deserve the best this world has to offer. Do not settle for anything less. I am so thankful God gave you to me. I love you more than you will ever know.
