There are many things she cannot understand and yet she understands many others. She understands emotions and the hearts and eyes of those she loves. She can sit for hours, watching and listening to her surroundings and never speak a word, but she is listening; she knows, she is very aware. She is the light that shines on her family, their reason for getting up in the morning; a special child who is both resilient and fragile at the same time. A child in the body of a woman who at times surprises me with her insights and wisdom. She is a strand of gold in the tapestry that is my life and I am blessed to have her as a friend..
