You are the most wonderful girl I know. I know I say that a lot, but it's true. That was beautiful. PS: Is your word verification trying to tell me something? It is "sycho". I'm serious.

keep counting on him, "cause he's counting on you, honey.
I say that as a Momma of a 20 year old. You are living the moments that kept me going too.


Love is beautiful. You can count the ways.
