This beautiful girl.
She graduated from Cosmetology school tonight.
She excelled. She exceeded.
Her classmates nicknamed her “The Book” and “Spellcheck.”
She overcame. She persisted. She prevailed.
And I am so so so proud of her.
I wish I had more time to tell her how proud of her I am.
More time to expound on just how much I like her and love her.
More time to gush over her that she’s doing great.
More time to clarify that I wish we spent more time together and that I will always be her safe place to fall.
But sometimes it feels like there’s 41 circumstances that prevent us from being together and talking.
But I hope my baby knows that I am ALWAYS here for her.
I hope she know she can turn towards me during breakdowns, during anger, during disappointments… and I will hold her and break her fall.
You heal me, Alexis Erica, even without knowing it.
You make me better.
Congratulations baby! I am beyond proud of you! 💗📶🎈👩🏼🎓♒️💇🏼💗
