Gentle On My Mind

My mind seems to be consumed with thoughts of Miranda lately.  I think about her all the time.  I am so inspired by the metamorphosis occurring in her life.

Never has she been more self-assured.  Never has she been more focussed and determined and bold.

Always an introspective child, she is discovering the courage to open her mouth and finally express those depths of brilliance and perception that have been brewing over the years.

Always a beauty, she is now polishing and perfecting and placing the gem on a more prominent setting, enabling it to catch the light from all directions.

Miranda is unique.  She understands that she may see life from a different perspective than most, but isn't afraid to represent her unparalleled self.  Never one to follow the crowd, she will stand alone with her principles if she must.  Thankfully she is finding those that share her values, and are happy to stand with her as the crowds pass by.

This is the time of your life to stretch your beautiful wings, Miranda.  Explore your gifts.  Fine tune your offering.  The world is a better place for your being in it.  I am blessed to call you daughter.
