note from the mother of this daughter:
she is all of the things she listed and SO MUCH MORE! Just sitting quietly with her, not even talking, when we sit on the porch to watch the flowers grow, with steaming coffee with identical matched color of Coffeemate in the cup, is amazing.
We think the same except I am not a sports person. Some slip up in her DNA, I suspect. She is who she is. Absolutely beautiful in all aspects. She makes me a better person. Every woman should have such a child in their life. I am surely blessed.
