She is........

Beautiful, amazing, fabulous, enlightened, brave, sweet, sassy, giving... I could go on and on and on about my daughter Rachel or Rachie as I love to call her.


I have been thinking a lot about my life ahead, my life behind me.  Mostly since my sisters cancer diagnosis and how I would feel in her shoes.  It gets you thinking about what you have done and what you want to do and what you are going to do.    When Rachie asked me to take a couple of pics of her I of course said yes.  In this particular shot as I stared down through the lens at the BEAUTIFUL young woman I immediately was overwhelmed with pride, love.  I love that Rachel has never ever ever compromised her feelings or position or beliefs in her 26 years on earth.  She has done things that have made her happy, not the masses.  She amazes me every day.  I should take a chapter out of her book and do what makes me happy, not what I think makes everyone else happy.  That is a very scary thought.  Rachie I hope you always know how much I love you and how you amaze me.
