September 17, 2003: Diary Entry

My life is so blessed. I have three beautiful daughters.

Rachel Shane is 14 and in the 9th grade. She is articulate, sensible, and wise. Her mind is not a shallow place, but complex and blessed. She is happy, joyous, and free.

Halie Mae is caring, friendly, and quit-witted. She has intelligent humor and an intuition of empathy and love.

Ema Irene is opinionated and sensitive all at once. She is a girl with an extensive vocabulary, much needed to express her many thoughts and observations.

They all have incredible deductive reasoning skills. My life, and the fact that I get to share my life with these beautiful children of God has been the best blessing of all.

I am thankful that these people know me through and through and still love me. I don’t ask for more.

My children and I have a family foundation, which is filled with love, laughter, sometimes misunderstandings, arguments, patience and impatience, but through it all, love.

—I now have four daughters. Valerie was born in 2011. She is very smart, enjoys building through Lego kits and Minecraft. She keeps me busy with her stories and ideas. She makes my world a better place.
