i absolutely love her, when she smiles

i am so thankful for my eldest child. my sweet monkey. 12 years ago i was anxiously awaiting her arrival, not knowing how much my world and outlook were about to change.

this is a picture of her laughing at the q man as we were making a moving trip from our old house to the apartment. she has one of the most beautiful smiles i have ever seen. she reminds me of how far life has come in her short life. she reminds me of how much love a person is capable of. i know that without her i wouldn't be who i am today. she's taught me that it is wise to choose my battles. she has also taught me that sometimes a hug can make it all better. she gives the best hugs and they can bring a smile to my face even in my darkest moods.
