Dew Drops on Grass

I've always been quite taken in by the beauty of a water droplet.
I LOVE how they line up in little rows across the blade of grass.

Dear Friends,
I got the most AMAZING news on Friday!
My daughter was accepted into Radford University.
She will begin her freshman year of college in August.
Not only did she get accepted...but she also got invited into the
Honors Academy...AND
she received an academic scholarship.
I can't tell you how proud I am of her :)
She is a smart and beautiful young lady.
But best of all - she is a kind young lady.
One of the kindest I know.
