As Mr. Mike always says no matter what I'm stressing out over, "You'll be fine." A:)

I remember this photo of your mom from GW days. She sure passed her focus on to you. You could paint a whole house in a weekend. Congratulations on your new house. I know you will make it even more wonderful. Especially if you take some of those wonderful roses with you.

You've got a strong gene pool, I'm not at all surprised! Plus, it's been passed on to 3 remarkable and resilient kiddoes.

Dawn...where did your mother ride steers? Was it a college rodeo thang or was it a San Antonio Rodeo thang? I love this old photo! This is a classic!

Your maman is gorgeousness. Like you. Or is it the other way around, you being the offspring and all...
