she is twenty six years old today.
Fourteen years ago, we both stepped foot into a portable classroom.
today, she will wake up in a city that i once lived for four years.
an eighteen hour road trip is all that lies between us.
a bond that came without warning is deeply rooted in my heart and for this woman i am so grateful beyond what words can explain.
and im really sad i can't find the photo of us from our field trip to the Biosphere.
"she is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.
she is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed."
