Where did the time go? In two weeks Mariama will be a teenager. What a great four and half years. Was is scary hopping on a plane and flying to another continent alone.. yah it was. Is teenagerdom even scarier sometimes.. with the silliness, the forgetfulness. all the lost sweatshirts, school clothes, forgotten items..yes.. Do I get tired of repeating myself twenty seven times a day. Sure. but what's the point of anything without someone as joyful as this to share it with. We have been forever changed by this gorgeous face.
