Great to be Eight

When I look at her face I see my sister. That only makes sense because my sister is her mother, and only 18 months younger than I am. We were together throughout our entire childhoods. We shared a room, wore matching clothes, had the same hair cuts, got the same perms, got matching toys, matching dolls, even matching stuffed animals. Now as adults we only live about a mile apart. Our kids are great friends, and I love it!

This girl has a lot of the same qualities that my sister has. She's very determined, kind, loyal, and fiercely competitive. If she's running a race she's going to be faster than anyone. If she's doing her homework, it's going to be the neatest handwriting, and there will be no mistakes. When she's playing soccer, she's going to get that ball if nobody else is, and she will get it in the goal no matter who gets in her way. If she sees a friend being mistreated she will put a stop to that immediately. She protects anyone she loves. It is so much fun to see her do just about anything. I literally cannot wait to see what she does with her life.

Like a Light

I will never forget meeting Karli for the first time just over a year ago. She and my daughter are friends at school, and were giving her a ride somewhere. When she came into the car, it was like a light switched on. She was full of energy like few people I know. She's a cheerleader and wrestler. How could you not love that combination? She talked a lot about her family. I was anxious to find out more about them. If they were anything like Karli I knew I would love them.

Her family did not disappoint me. Her mom is not only mom to 5 kids, but also a NICU nurse. Her dad -- a hard worker who is there for them all. The youngest brother? Well, he's hilarious and so cute you want to take him home with you. The oldest recently received a medal of merit for helping save lives during a drowning incident. Karli's sister is saving lives of her own as a paramedic, and wants to be a fire fighter. Her younger brother is a self taught musical genius who can play any instrument. They are an amazing group of people. I'm pleased to know them, even though it started to rain during our session together, it was anything but dreary.
