A few weeks ago I convinced a beautiful young lady to come tromp around the snow during a crazy April blizzard. If she was cold she never complained but then I’ve never heard her complain about anything.
I’ve known Hope since she was about the same age as my kids and since moving back to South Dakota my whole family has felt so blessed to have her as a special part of our lives.
We often say that people are beautiful from the inside out but that’s especially true for Hope. She has an awesome sense of her own fun style and is wise beyond her years at being comfortable in her own skin.
Every time I leave the company of this beautiful lady I’m smiling, praying and ‘hoping’ that my daughter grows up to be as lovely as Hope.
Happy Sweet 16th Birthday Hope. You are loved.
