My 9-year-old daughter had been waiting for several months for this moment. We planned it for the winter school break, and when it came she first decided against it. But early this morning my sweet baby girl changed her mind and walked into the mall scared out of her mind. Her mother, aunt, brother and I were all there by her side but she was still thinking about turning right around. I was so proud that she went through with it and now she has 2 beautiful earrings in those freshly pierced ears of hers. She was so brave! She’s been running around the house all day giddier than a girl on the first night of Chanukah.
I believe it’s moments like these that happen all the time in our lives that rise so high above any topic that I’ve ever written and ever will write about on this blog.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
