14


On this day each year images flash through my mind.  Like a nosy filmstrip that I watched in school when I was 14 that always included shaky images with a firm voice over narration.  But when my mind is watching your filmstrip, Morgan Freeman narrates and your 14 years speed by before I can even settle in to watch.


Compassionate.  Tender.  Kind.  Strong.  Smart.  So very smart. 


Happy birthday sweet girl.


I love you.

Love,
Mom
