Alot Like Me

I look at her….and sometimes when she looks back….I see me…

Sometimes she is not so graceful….tripping on her flip flops…laughing and hitting an elbow into the wall….

Alot like me…

She is smart…test scores very high in math and reading….loves book and numbers…

Alot like me…

She likes horses….could stay at the barn all day…

Alot like me…

She likes to talk…telling stories…listening to stories…animated and uses her hands to emphasize…

Alot like me…

She worries….fears the dark…the unknown…makes her anxious…

Alot like me…

She scrutinizes herself….finding her imperfections and not seeing what a beautiful little girl she is…

Alot like me…

When I look at her….see those eyes looking up at me….only 8…learning her way…finding her strengths…her confidence…I wrap my arms around her and hug her tight….realizing she is..

Alot like me…
