My daughter is becoming a little girl. She is so much more capable than I give her credit for; she surprises me with her words and abilities every day. I am in awe of the person she is becoming, so self aware, so self assured. She is amazing.
This past Friday I was able to witness my daughter do something very special and it was clear that I wasn’t the only one who realized – my daughter was obviously very proud. You could tell – from the way she walked, from the look on her face – that she was completely aware of the responsibility she had been given, that she took it very seriously and that she delighted in her assignment.
Here are some pictures of my daughter walking her very good friend Lucy. The two were perfect for each other, keeping the same pace and stopping to examine the same flowers and bushes along the way. It was so wonderful to witness my daughter doing something that brought her so much joy and self confidence. When I imagine witnessing more moments like this one my heart goes all a flutter.
