To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

She is carefree and happy.
Easy to please with just a smile and a quick hug.
Absolutely loves being in school.
She can be really loud sometimes.
When she is really tickled by something her whole face laughs.
She talks all the time.
She adds such joy to our family. The last six years have been brighter because of her.
