It’s my youngest daughter’s birthday today. I can’t believe she’s a legit grownup woman because I still see this little girl when I think of her. Look at that smile.
She’s always been such a joy to be around—happy, loving, and smart. She is also generous and has a real heart for other people. Even as a young kid, she would stand up for anyone she thought was being picked on or treated unfairly. As she got older, she continued to look out for her friends, becoming the one others could count on for sound advice and support.
She’s also always been very independent and strong in her convictions. I’m so proud of the lovely person she is and always has been. And she still has that beautiful smile.
