Your wings just grew in.
Life has cleared you for take-off.
Fly, Gorgeous Girl, fly.
Jessie, High School Prom, June 2008
I don’t always gush about my niece Jessica on the blog, though I adore her, think she is brilliant and beautiful, funny and capable of anything she sets her mind to. Jessie is a private person and doesn’t really like me to put her photos out on the internet very much.
But I am making an exception today because I found out yesterday that my gorgeous 19 year old niece is striking out on an adventure. She has made the plan, arranged the details and even decided to leave a really nice guy behind because she knows it is her time to fly.
I am so proud of her I could burst.
And Jess’s courage and strength has inspired me to blow the dust off my own beautiful wings and spread them a bit wider, and maybe think about my own flight plan a little more…
Putting love and wind beneath your wings and praying for clear skies for your flight, My Beautiful Girl.
I love you.
