Along with Memorial Day, we just finished up a week of celebrating her birthday.
It was hard to correct her, because she was so darn cute.
Now, at 16, she is amazes me. She is like a beautiful painting that when you first look at it, the colors are bright and beautiful, but as you study it, you realize what a complex masterpiece it is. This is my Grace.
Last week, our extended family surprised her with a party. In the Jones family tradition, each of us went around and told Grace what we loved about her. From uncles to aunts, cousins, sisters and grandmas, we all told Grace words of affirmation. (A great tradition we do at every Jones birthday.)
Uncle Dave wrote down the words that we all used.
Steadfast, fun, musical, easy going, awesome, inventor of lasterday, forgiving, sweet, talented, tenderhearted, open, original, greatest sister, wonderful, frustrating, listener, adviser, deep, crazy, complex, sensitive, and random.
How lucky I am to be her mom.
We love our Gracie!
I am so proud of her.
