Her presence still as captivating as the day I first met her. As often is the case, people don’t know the strength and beauty they possess. There’s something about her, a breadth and depth to her soul, and inner strength that stands against all social norms. It’s in her lust for life, the way she talks about the things she loves, it’s as if her dreams of wonder live in her every word and every motion so that you can’t help but see the world new, illuminated. She speaks without fear of indifference or ridicule. It is women like her that her that bring the world to it’s knees.
Thank you for giving me the honor to watch you grow into one of the most beautiful human beings I have ever known. Thank you for inspiring me to greater heights and accepting all the crazy that comes with me. Thank you for turning on the light when all I see is darkness.
But most of all thank you for being you.
