In The Middle

This is my middle child.  She's a beautiful person inside and out.  She has a gigantic heart, and her kindness is unlike anything I've ever witnessed.  She has a deep desire to see that everyone feels loved around her.  She's sympathetic and perceptive. Wherever we go, she's the first to make new friends.  With a warm smile and a welcoming word, she makes everyone feel special. She is sensitive to the needs of others.

She's complex.  She cries easily when her feelings are hurt, but she's tough as nails when she's in trouble.  She takes her punishment like a man.  She's competitive and full of determination. She's the first to volunteer to try something new, and never looks back.  She's got guts.

My girl is a singer of hymns and a living room dancer. She's a flower picker, card designer, and a maker of bracelets. She's a mother to dolls, and a lover of animals.  She's a dog kisser, a cat cuddler, a chicken feeder, and a cowgirl.

She's a sister, and a protector, and a friend. She's a hand holder. She listens much, and laughs often.  She's fiercely loyal, and surrounds herself with friends.  She hates to be alone.

When she grows up, she wants to be a missionary, a mommy, and rancher's wife.

I just want her to stay little forever.


  1. She's beautiful and it sounds like you all are doing a wonderful job!

  2. A loving tribute to a special girl! :)

  3. I hope you tuck this away somewhere special and give it to your daughter when she has children of her own. It is simply beautiful.
