Check Out My Daughter

Dj and I went for a walk a few weeks ago. She started telling me about an assignment they had in school. The assignment was to pretend you are an artist and tell how you would illustrate yourself.

She said she sat for a long time and kept thinking about books. She finally decided that was how she would go about it. She wrote that she was a book that you would find in the back of the library, rarely pulled off the shelf, hardly ever read. The cover was dull and not at all interesting. The few people that bothered to check out the book were pleasantly surprised to find the most colorful pages on the inside. They loved the book, it was beautifully written and full of humor. She ended it with the old saying “Never judge a book by its cover.”

She went on to tell me that she believes that is exactly how her friendships have been formed. The few people that took the time to get to know her have found that she is bright and shiny on the inside, and quiet and understated on the outside.

I am continually in awe of her self awareness at the age of 16. I hope to someday grow up to be just as smart as her!
