Happy Monday

Over the weekend my niece went to the annual Daddy Daughter Dance at her school. She was pretty excited to go and loved her new red dress.  Snow White and her daddy had a great time together and I think she's already looking forward to it next year. I love this tradition that she and her daddy have together. I think it's sweet that they get to spend some time together and make special memories that they'll never forget.
She's growing up so quickly and in some ways it makes me mourn for the little girl we are steadily losing. It seems like it was yesterday when she first started walking and talking everyone's ears off. I love the person she is becoming. What makes her special in my eyes is that she is as beautiful on the inside as I think she is on the outside. Her smile will light up a room and bring joy to those who know her. I rejoice in knowing that she is growing up in a loving environment and in some ways look forward to seeing the woman she will one day become. I'm spending time with her this week and I can't wait to see her. I haven't seen my family since Christmas and I'm anxious to visit with them.

I hope everyone has a great week ahead.
