This girl, my girl, is the coolest. She is funny, has a great guffawing laugh, is sweet and considerate, loves to help people. Her life is devoted to creating and inventing, from robots to dog treat dispensers. She is good at math (I am NOT). She climbs trees, and I mean 25 foot Magnolia trees, with no fear and complete joy.
And she just learned how to do this back bend which I have longed to do my whole life but never had enough trust in the universe to not break my neck. But she does, she trusts absolutely and with her whole heart that life will always stretch out before her in sunshine, green grass, and that wonderfully dizzy feeling of using every molecule of her body to experience her world.
I want to be just like her when I grow up.
