She's been a hugger since she was tiny. All through school she was a hugger. Her hugs were contagious, and spread. She was a leader throughout junior high, high school, and college, spreading hugs wherever she went, lifting spirits and leaving smiles in her wake.
Life's dealt her some big challenges in recent months, which she's navigated with grace and strength. She's a resilient, optimistic young woman who's experienced many triumphs and successes already even at her young age, and will experience many more in the future.
She, and you have probably already seen this, the most popular video on you tube. It's so heartwarming, I think it's worth seeing multiple times. As we head back to work and our busy, often stressful lives after this holiday weekend, these hugs are for her, for K my oldest, and for the Viking Girl, my baby, who've had their share of ups and downs this year as well, for my husband who works very hard and takes such good care of me, and for everyone I care about, including you.
