Someone I admire.....
A person that I totally admire is my daughter. My beautiful , talented, opinionated daughter who will be fifteen on Saturday. Where has the time gone?
Why do I admire her?
I admire that she seems to be grounded and know what she wants and what it will take to get her there. At fifteen she is focused and wiser than I was at her age. I am so proud that she realizes the value of "family" and will happily spend the day with her grandparents rather than a day shopping with the girls. She takes the time to drop in to visit her great grandfather who is not doing very well without me ever asking. She has a huge heart. She has not lost her mind over boys, she sets goals for herself and she meets her own expectations. I truly believe she will achieve whatever her dream will be one day. She is a leader not a follower.
You know if she is working on your project she will give 110% unless its housework.
Somewhere along the way she attained a sense of self, a firm belief of right and wrong . With her there is not a gray area you are either in the right or the wrong and she doesn't let you wiggle out of it. I believe as she grows this may change a bit. Yet, I so admire how she does not hesitate to STAND for what she believes is right even if not the popular opinion. She will defend when she believes a person has been wronged even though it may cost her.
A beautiful, talented young woman my daughter has turned into. I am proud to call her mine. I am proud of who she is and proud of who I know she will be. Wow, did I get lucky fifteen years ago when God blessed us with this amazing girl. This amazing girl whom I so admire.
