Winning the Climb

She’s my first “baby of the family”.

Titleholder for 20 years when she handed it over to Blossom with love and joy.

Memories Captured-Heather

I love her like breathing.

My best friend, confidant, near to my soul as only a daughter can be.

Mommy to Princess and Warrior Girl; Princess and Warrior Girl herself.

A runner, a climber and a 3rd grade teacher.

Tenacious and stubborn, she seeks perfection.

I want to grow up and be like her.

Smiling serenely. Content she’s near. Always.

My baby.

My girl.

    Others pointed out the line, “I love her like breathing”. Holy sh*#! There are only a few times I’ve really been stunned by a line in something I read, and this is one. So, congrats, out of the zillions of things I’ve read in my LONG life, you get one of the “wow” moments.
