Seventeen

To you, my independent one.

My oh-so-disciplined child who has

. . . practiced willingly

. . . studied carefully

. . . loved tenderly

. . . saved diligently

. . . given faithfully

. . . tutored selflessly

. . . befriended loyally

. . . traveled begrudgingly

. . . laughed joyfully

. . . challenged truthfully

Thank you for teaching me so much. Thank you for your sense of humor, your sense of style, and your sense of caring.

You, special girl, are a gift, and I love you so much.



Happy birthday, Caroline!

Love,

Mom

Shelly
