before i had children...

before i had children, i had niece. she'd always spend the night, we'd go on adventures, waikiki Staycations, eat at the cheesecake factory, and be fabulous together.

i closed my eyes for a second and she grew up. i turned around and it was 10 years later. she's brilliant, kind, and loving. all the things i prayed she'd become. actually, she's just like me.

10 years later she's starting high school. 10 years later i'm still praying for her. praying she doesn't lose her wonder. praying she remains focused. praying she knows her worth. praying she knows she's loved.

i love you kel. happy 1st day of high school.
