I cannot believe that you started your junior year.  The time has gone by so quickly, it feels like a blur.  I don’t have the ability to write a long “oh how she grows” post these days, simply because time and space have changed our relationship.  I sometimes don’t feel like I know you as well as your other parents but I’m coming to terms with that.

I’ll always be here, always.  I am fortunate that right now you are on FB so I catch glimpses of you through the memes you post (and oh, do you love memes) and pictures.  You are such a beautiful girl, fragile around the edges but with a strong heart.  I hope this year proves to be the year you truly find your footing and take care of yourself.  I love you so much, my chicken.  Always. xoxo
