She has been somewhat pressed lately, and in that pressing things have leaked out. What has seeped out has been good. Its been strong. Its been confident. Its been intelligent. Its been honorable. Its been beautiful. It's not been easy. I'm so proud of her. I'm not sure if at her age I would have leaked out such a pleasant aroma. I surely would have been not as mature and certainly less wise.
I think this is an encouragement to us parents. What we pour in (good or bad) does take hold. Its good to be aware of, and intentional about, what that is. I'm beginning to see that our kids take what we give them and they work with it and mold it until it fits them.
Good job, my girl. Your mom thinks you're pretty terrific.
