I cannot believe that my step-niece named Melanie is getting married this Saturday. It only seems like yesterday when she was born! She was born in 1986. I was a freshman in high school, which is what my daughter is now! I remember holding her tiny body in my arms and kissing and hugging her tight. Now to think that she is starting a life of her own is amazing to me.
Melanie has three siblings. Out of her siblings, she was the one who always ate very healthy as a child. Can you imagine a six year old wanting to eat salad? She didn't like Coca-Cola and always opted for water or sweet tea. She was always the quiet one and a bit moody at times. Still waters run deep with her. She just received her Bachelor's degree and is trying hard to make something of herself. I am really proud of her.
When I see her I can still see that quiet, little girl. Will that vision in my head ever disappear?
