In my mind, I thought she would be brown. Curly hair. Dark eyes.
Out she came. Fair skin. Blue eyes and light hair.
This is the girl that made me a momma. Nine years ago and one of the best days of my life.
Corinne is about as sweet as they come. Kind. Helpful. Considerate. Gentle. Polite. She’s a listener and more on the quiet side. Simple. Probably too mature for her age, but I’m okay with that.
I did Corinne’s 9th birthday pictures several days ago when the sunflowers here in Wichita were at their peak. I was going to bring along one of my other daughters to help make her laugh in the pictures, but Corinne requested that just her and I go alone. I am glad that’s the way it happened. We had a good hour together, her and I. We shared good conversation and I was proud of her for who she was that evening. I’m thankful for this one- I hope and pray that she does great things.
