She starts every single day with a smile.
She expresses her love freely and completely to everyone in her life.
She loves herself just as she is…she loves all of us just as we are.
She enjoys the mundane things we take for granted like wearing pajamas and watching TV and being lazy surrounded by your friends.
She gets as excited over a trip to Disney or a new stuffed friend as she does to see my face in the morning.
She is everything I’ve wanted to be and everything I wanted in a daughter.
I’ve learned through her 19 years that she IS joy. Personified, completely and overwhelmingly, she IS joy.
I’m so incredibly lucky to be her mom and have a constant reminder about what is important and that every day can be joyful if you try.
