Glimpses

She is only eleven, yet I see glimpses of who she will be years down the road.
This Sweet Shot was taken Monday night.
We celebrated her Confirmation.
It was a beautiful service.
We have a wonderful parish.
It made me feel a little teary.

I want her to know faith is always a work in progress.
I want her to hold on to it and keep it somewhere safe.
I don't want her to be surprised that it is something that needs constant tending.

I want her to understand just how much she is loved.

xoxo,

This post will be participating in Sweet Shot Tuesday,
