Today my youngest turns ten. Ten is quite a milestone, and this ten year-old has experienced a lot in her decade.
I have learned more from her than I ever thought that I would learn from a child. Audrey has taught me to listen more intently and live more freely. She has taught me to let go of expectations and go with what you feel. She has the strength to face challenges with confidence and the guts to go for what she wants.
I see something in her that I have never seen in another person before. She has so much compassion, so much energy and is the most unique personality that I have ever met.
To you, my curly-haired, freckle-faced ten year old. I love you. Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy!
