My daughter had to write an essay as part of her application process to her new high school.
She had a few topics to choose from. She chose to write about a person that inspires her.
I am so flattered that she chose me! I was even more honored when I read it.
After she finished the essay, she said, “Phew mom, writing about your life was exhausting!”
I laughed and replied, “Ya, and those are only the highlights!”
She had to ask me for adjectives, highlights& lowlights of my childhood, early adulthood and adulthood.
It was hard for me to reflect on. I had to search for highlights and tried to not sound so dismal with my adjectives; but, she proceeded to compose a beautiful essay about me that brought me to tears. I am such a proud mama!
