Oh, this lovely lady. Sharon. She's graced these pages before (see her posts here and here and here) and she is going to be a regular on the blog from now on. It does me good to connect with such good souls. And today is her birthday! Happy Birthday, sweet Sharon! May it be filled with good!
A Love Note to her little one, Linhsey. I am loving this feisty little soul.

Linhsey, what can I say? This summer would be considered a bust to many. You were sick and in pain the entire summer. I saw a side of you that was new. You were scared, worried, and in pain. Even though I had no control over the circumstances, I was filled with guilt that I couldn’t make it better.
That is my job as your Mama after all….to kiss it and make it better. I’m sorry for the times I thought to myself it impossible that you could still be having tummy pain. I’m sorry for any doubts I ever had. My hope for you is that this summer hasn’t made you forget your strength and who you are. You are one of the strongest 8 year olds I know and to have the loving heart and compassion that you have is just the icing on the cake!
I believe in you with every ounce of my being, and I want you to always believe in yourself as well. I leave you with these wise words that you have written many times, "Be yourself. Never change!"
I love you with all of my heart and more,
