Her eyes, deep and warm, like the color of mink. They sparkle like new pennies when she's happy. The smile, it sneaks up on you and then erupts, all teeth and whimsy. It is my most favorite of her features. She is strong and fiercely loyal. The heart, once broken has healed. The spirit, bruised but not crushed.
YL is going on a trip this weekend; taking another step towards mending her spirit and affirming her independence.
I will miss you sweetie, be safe and good luck.
