The way she faithfully prays through her verses and lets them fill her up:
The way she chatters away about the sun and the woods and moon rising:
The way she gets hurt and says so aloud and finds comfort and picks herself up:
The way she bursts in happiness when she has been generous and giving and sacrificing:
The way she loves with purpose:
The way she asks a million questions and looks for answers and seeks them out until she knows:
The way she dances:

Shining with glitter and faith.
