Grateful Friday

I’m pretty much always grateful for Fridays, but today I’m grateful for a certain little lady in my life.

Last night I spent the evening with my lovely daughter Emma. It was her Date Night, and after a tough day for her, getting out for some one-on-one fun was perfect timing.

She’s on a sushi kick these days, and I’m totally down with that. We grabbed some yummy rolls at our favorite sushi restaurant (she out-ate me and we ordered more than Greg and I ever do!). We followed it up with the cute movie, Chimpanzee.

As a parent, I know that I’m supposed to be the teacher to my kids.  But Emma is such an amazing example to me. She is quick to help out, even before I have a chance to ask. She has a tender heart, whether it’s the death of an animal in a movie, or if she sees someone hurting, she takes on that pain and will do whatever she can to comfort them. Her feelings can also easily be hurt if someone is unkind. Her ability to forgive is amazing… she will say “sorry” even if she’s done nothing wrong, just to bring peace and closure to a situation. If someone has been unkind, she will always accept an apology and truly let go. If someone is feeling sad or left out, she will take upon herself to put her arm around that person and be a good friend.

This little girl is so incredibly beautiful to me. Her smile, her laugh, her pure heart. What a wonderful blessing she has been in my life. Not only am I lucky to have her as my daughter, but I’m lucky to know and love her… a really, genuinely good person.

Here’s a high five and a fist bump to this awesome and amazing person we call Emma. YOU ROCK!
