This darling daughter of mine turned 24 yesterday. She has been through a lot of living in her short 24 years. Last night at a celebratory birthday dinner, we went around the table and each of us told Markelle something that we love about her: her kindness, compassion, passion for life, creativity, and love for all. She related an experience she had with a homeless person that came into her shop this past week, and to me it perfectly illustrated how her heart is with the downhearted and downtrodden. She has an understanding and empathy for people that I still am working on developing. She feels things so deeply. I love and admire this beautiful young woman!
