She was walking on the beach leaving her footprints and when I realized what she was doin, I wanted her to turn and walk away from us so that I could take a picture of her, because it reminded me so much of my favorite poem "Footprints In The Sand" but she was tired, grumpy and cold...so this picture was as good as it got :) Never once did we think to GO behind her and take the picture lol
When I look at my daughter Anaissa now, this is still what I see in my hearts eye...she is now 13 and about 5'8 and I coulda swore 5'10 because she looks so freakin tall, I am 5'4 so it amazes me still...that I have to look up...if I want to look into my babys eyes...not to mention that it breaks my heart sometimes too :)
Both my daughters are brilliant...at least in my eyes :) They are both equally talented and love to draw, write stories, do journals and are just so artistic and talented that it blows my mind...I often wonder how, where did this talent come from? At just 13, Anaissa speaks like an adult... an albeit pompous adult :) hey I am "ama"...I can say that lol She loves big words and loves throwing her sister off with them...I can't tell you how many times I hear her leaving her big sister in a huff simply saying..."look it up" after insulting her and you know....(pssst don't say anything, this is stickily between us..but I sometimes have to leave the room because the need to laugh is just overwhelming...especially when I hear my older daughter yell "Mamie" and I have to define for her what her baby sister just called her :)The other day, Anaissa left a paper at my desk that she was typing up for her English Gate class so uhmmm I stole this little piece...I couldn't help it...I thought it was beautiful :)
The Brightest Star...A young girl. Full of love. Full of happiness. A bright girl.
One that literally shines with enthusiasm. A girl...that glows withhappiness & joy. She's carefree. She's young.
She is enlightened. She smiles & every other person in the worldcan't help but smile with her. Star...That's what they call her.
The brightest of them all. The one that's not afraid of strangers &embraces them with open arms. She's never afraid...
She's the girl I want to be. A girl, not a woman.
But sadly, that's a girl...no one will ever see.
Oh Nissa amor, if you only knew... that when mamie looks at you....that is the girl... I see :)
