this girl

This girl is beautiful - inside and out.

This girl is overflowing with creativity. It bubbles out of her in songs, poems, paintings, and in almost everything that she touches.

This girl's joy is contagious.

This girl cares deeply and isn't afraid to show it.

This girl isn't afraid to be herself 100% of the time.

When this girl gives a gift, she gives of herself. She'll paint you a picture of something that she knows you love. She'll make you a CD of your favorite music - or better yet, music that will become your favorite. She'll write you a song and call you up and play it for you on the ukulele.

And when my day is especially long, and I'm so tired I don't think I can go another step, and the universe seems to be out of whack, all I have to do is see her smiling face and hear her sweet voice and somehow the air seems a little bit lighter and the planets somehow realign in my world.

I'm so happy and blessed that this girl calls me mama.
