She is so strong.
Sometimes I don’t think she realizes how much inner strength she has, because she worries about how she will handle things.
She is beautiful.
I *know*. She’s a girl so of course she has days where she doesn’t feel it, but even on those days I can see the light that shines in her eyes.
My girl can love stronger than wind can blow, she can laugh with more sparkle than any twinkling body of water. She is bold, she is brave and she is incredible. And today, she is 19 years old.
I love you, my dear and darling daughter Keisha. Don’t ever change. You are magnificent.
