Sometimes I think I don’t tell her enough how proud I am of her.
This girl with her smile as open as her heart.
The one who works hard,
keeps her promises,
and loves without condition.
The two of us, we have learned together.
A million and one mothering mistakes I’m sure I’ve made.
And now as she stands 5’9 and full of forgiveness for all of my failings, I am supremely proud of the young women she has become.
