This is the story of a girl who cried a river and drowned the whole world…

“This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles”

When I heard this song yesterday, it struck me how much it described Paige. (It’s “Absolutely (Story of a Girl)” by Nine Days if you don’t know it.)

I knew exactly what he meant.

You see, this is my sweet Sunshine and over her short 6 years, she’s had more bad days than good.

Due to food allergies and personality issues, these years have been tough.

Super tough.

Until this year. We turned a HUGE corner. We’ve had a momentous last few months. The tide has finally shifted and things are looking so much brighter these days.

She accomplished something not many of us truly thought she would. She started Kindergarten.

She made new friends and learned new things.

She lost her top teeth (one of them at school) and landed that prized “tooth fairy” necklace.

She participated in activities I never thought she would be able to.

She accomplished so many things this year and even though she made TREMENDOUS strides, somewhere deep inside, she’s still this little girl….
