Today, I learned that a dear young woman, my friend's daughter, placed 1st place in the 50M Snowshoe race for the Winter Special Olympics. Now she gets to go on to compete at the state competition. I am so proud of her. I have known her since before she was born and I have babysat for her since infancy. She is a beautiful teenager and I love her dearly. I am so proud of her. Just over 2 years ago she had major back surgery and now she is competing successfully in the Special Olympics! She is an amazing girl and this is just one more way that she has amazed me.
By the way, the pictures are random photos of winter...just because.
