This time every year since I was knee-high, and probably even before that, our church has gathered for a Mother/Daughter Tea. I remember going with my mom and her mom and now I take my little girls.
This year, the theme had to do with memories. My sweet Girlfriend(7) was one of three young girls who was asked to share a favorite vacation memory.
She planned and prepared and practiced. She wrote out her memory in her own hand, with no help from me at all. Her joy and enthusiasm were a beautiful thing.
The event went off without a hitch. She was masterful with the microphone. She read her story loudly and clearly.
She is beautiful and I am so proud!
