Today, she is a bundle of energy and fun. She is creative and kind. She is learning to sew and loves making art out of leftover scraps of fabric and paint. She loves to dance and perform. She loves ice cream with her cake. She loves all shades of blue but she also loves black. She is sensitive yet not afraid to tell you how she feels. She wears her heart on her sleeve and bracelets from her wrist almost to her elbows. She is just beginning to define her style and that usually involves a peace sign. She is a loyal friend and a loving sister. She is delicate and yet strong. She is dramatic and compassionate. Above all she is beautiful inside and out.
I love this girl. I've had the privilege of watching her grow over the past decade. I can't wait to see who she becomes in the next decade. I have no doubt that there will be some bumps along the way, but I also have no doubt that she will pick herself after she falls and shine on. She's a fighter. She has been since she was born.
