She's that


More reluctant than before to be in front of a camera.  She's that.


Jumps out of my car in the pickup line at school to help a classmate struggling with books and backpacks and coats and projects.  She's that.  Writes a letter to a former teacher that make such an impact that that teacher stops me all teary eyed to tell me what a special kid she is.  She's that.


Fearless in her fashion.  A trendsetter really.  Wears some new clothing statement and it's only a matter of weeks until others at school are sporting the same look.  She's that.


So in tune with human emotion.  Able to lighten the feeling in a room.  With just the right joke.  Or gentle hug at exactly the needed moment.  She's that.


Funny.  Oh my, she's that.


Determined.  She's that.  She taught herself how to do a back walkover on nothing more than spunk . . . and YouTube video tutorials.

Eleven. 
 
She's that.
 
And so much more.
 
Smart.  Conscientious.  Diplomatic.  Clever.  Beautiful.  Animal loving.  Confident.  Thoughtful.  Athletic.  Competitive.  Humble.  Easy going.  Persistent.
 
And mine.
 
Happy Birthday Licious.  I love you.
 
Love,
Mom

Diane stole my comment but I was going to phrase it more like, "Boy, that apple doesn't fall far, eh?" You know, all Canadian-like so you'd know it was from me….
