This, Petal Rose's 11th year of learning, working, playing and living this life, has been one of tremendous growth. It is pure delight to catch glimpses of the dreams and ponderings deep inside this mostly quiet girl. And it tickles me to see my quiet girl boisterouly laughing and playing with kindred spirits in the sunshine.
Taking these "back to school" pictures was a perfect oppotunity to see the beautiful young woman emerging in the sweet pretty girl.
This picture captured a moment where my eyes saw little bits of future hopes realized in this precious daughter of mine!
