Today was an extra special day for me, not only was it the day of our little town's annual Fall Festival/Homecoming weekend, which my kids love, but it was also the day that I had the honor to take my niece, Kallen's senior pictures. A senior, really a senior. What happened to the sweet little red head that would melt our hearts with every smile that she graced us with. She has turned into quite the young lady...and I couldn't be more proud of all her accomplishments. It's hard to believe that in less than five short months this young lady will be eighteen.
If I could give you any advice for the future it would be to have the courage to grow up and become who you really are, and to always, always, always fight for what you know is right. You are an amazing young woman with a heart of gold, please never change that about yourself. One of the greatest pleasures I have had in my life is watching you grow up and become the person you are, and I can't wait to see what life brings you in the future. You truly are an amazing person Kallen and in the words of Johnny Cade from "The Outsiders", "Stay Gold" I love you more than you will ever know!!!
