This morning I stopped by my friend Quincy’s home (see January 14, June 19). She, her husband Joel and their daughter Sophie were holding a yard sale to raise money for a party at the end of this academic year to celebrate their graduation from elementary school. Just like her mother, Sophie is incredibly creative, so I decided to give her one of my arts and crafts books about card-making. I know she will enjoy playing around with the designs in the book, and will be inspired to create unique designs of her own. Her creative soul inspired me to write this in her honor.
Smart and Strong – she knows who she is and what she wants to be.
Optimistic and Open – she’s always ready for a new challenge and a new friend.
Pensive and Philosophical – she thinks about how to make the world better.
Helpful and Hardworking – she knows how to put a smile on a teacher’s face.
Innovative and Inspired – she makes art of all kinds, from cooking to clay owls.
Expressive and Enthusiastic – she has enough energy to go around.
Always be this way, Sophie!
