This Little Girl – Laurinda

This little girl turned 30 yesterday! You’ll see her wedding picture to the right. She is awaiting the birth of her own baby right now! Incredibly, you can also see the picture of that miracle baby to the right as well!

I am so proud of this young woman for, among other things, her perseverance and strength of character. In many ways I wish I were more like her. She has a strong personality, and yet knows how to be vulnerable. I admire the way she allows herself to lean on her husband.

She is so smart, and I think sometimes she doesn’t really know how much she has to contribute to this world. She is beautiful, inside and out.

I love her with all my heart. She is my daughter. Happy birthday, Daughter!!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
