the word that seems to be echoing in my head after getting to spend time with this beautiful girl is the word resilient. it means to withstand and “come back” after being bent or stretched from difficult situations. and this beautiful woman has been on a journey in life and has done and is doing just that. I admire her and loved my time with her. I admire her beauty and how she carries herself with strength and dignity and a little bit of wit. 😉 I admire her that she doesn’t try to hide her faults but speaks openly and transparently about who she is and who she wants to be more of. I admire her ability to work hard – whether it’s on the volleyball court or with her younger siblings. I admire her ability to love big with the people she treasures around her. I admire her ability to walk tall knowing the legacy she is carrying but not being burdened by it. I just admire her.her mama would be proud of the beautiful resiliency she displays daily in just being her for the world to see and I think she would be even more proud of the woman she is and who she is still chasing at being. congratulations to this year, mckenna – class of 2020 looks good on you!
