“To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.” ~ Napoleon Hill
This beautiful girl came into my life when she was just small. I became her ‘second’ mom as I cared for her while her parents worked. Typically shy and quiet much of her life, we enjoyed many fun and fabulous times together but as she reached the stage where she wanted to spread her wings more we spent less and less time together. We connected at family events and gatherings and then one day she was part of the adult conversations at those gatherings, part of the laughter, part of the sharing of life lessons… even contributing to those conversations.
She has grown into an incredible young woman. She is more outgoing, witty and charming. A smart girl with a good head on her shoulders. She has a plan and excited about what lies ahead. I could not be more proud of this beautiful woman.
Congratulations Delaney on your graduation!
