On Monday, my middle child, my only girl, turned 17. I remember being 17 with such clarity; I wanted to make her an extra-special birthday card, with an extra-special quote.
For beautiful eyes
Look for the good in others
For beautiful lips
Speak only words of kindness
And for poise,
Walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
- Audrey Hepburn
Those of you who know Amanda, will know how pleased I was with the drawing, and the resemblance to her!
