365 Reasons to Smile – Day 13

text messageI am so fortunate to have the gift of my daughter. She is smart and energetic and enthusiastic and expressive.

Especially expressive.

Like her mother, she shares exactly what’s on her mind.

At almost 12, her topics of discussion range from the characters in the latest book she is reading to her dislike of the dinner menu.

When I’m not with her, she uses text messages to share her opinions. I feel fortunate that she still wants to let me into her psyche, and that always makes me smile.
