She is all these things:
But she is also all of these things:
This does not list everything of course. She is so many things. And will become a lot more things with time. But she is my angel. She is so trusting and loving and wants to be loved so much. She loves her friends and is blindingly trusting that everyone is like her. And they are not. It’s tough. They must be left to learn the lessons of life but I’m not ready for her to take it on alone. I’m sorry, but this girl is a package deal. You hurt one, you hurt four. She has had some tough times of late from people she has completely trusted. Girls just being mean. Just mean and downright nasty. Where does this come from??? I don’t know. As parents we are limited to what we can say and do in school friend issues, but it is taking all my strength to hold back. So I try to channel my strength to her. And let her know she has done nothing wrong and how special she is. Hard to tell a 10 y.o. this. But I am so proud of my Jess. There have been many tears but she is handling all of this with a grace that seems beyond her years. She really is amazing. There’s another word for her. But I also hurt for her. I hope this stops soon. This mum’s heart bursts for her children.
My No. 2 picture will be a little less emotional I promise.
Grateful to be part of this challenge.
