On the Last Day of September

September 30, 2010

She turned twenty-one years old today. 

I remember when she was six. 

So timid and cautious-unsure of this world and what it was handing her. 

She has always been careful.  Not wanting life to hand her something she didn’t know how to handle.

She became brave one day–but still careful.  She never wanted to miss something for reason of fear.

Her life came with many challenges-some she met head on-others are still inside her. 

In her is gentleness and grace-not often seen in a life so young.

Her heart is giving and kind-but she keeps hidden the deepest parts. 

She has the voice of a thousand wings in flight-a voice that only she can hear.  She sings-but only what others want to hear.  I know someday her voice and heart will meet.

I know the light inside her.  Someday I hope to see the reflection that is hidden from me.

I hold out my hand to her-it has been there since she was six-it will be there always. 

Happy Birthday, dear Jordan.

    Vonda, it is uncanny
    that I should read this
    today, right now….
    Just got done holding
    my 15-year old’s hand
    and stroking her hair
    after she came home
    from school in tears.
    She sounds a lot like
    your Jordan….Quiet
    and mature for her age,
    yet full of sunshine and
    deep thoughts, too.
    I assured her that she
    will be more widely
    appreciated when she
    gets to college and the
    rest of the kids have
    reached her maturity
    level. Lovely post
    and thanks for sharing
    this beautiful young
    woman with your readers.
    xx Suzanne
