August 2015:

Last night, I was looking through my daughter’s pictures on facebook, and what I saw surprised me.

I saw her photos in a way I’ve never seen them before. It was as if I was looking at life through her eyes for the very first time.

Don’t get wrong, I’ve always known my daughter was an artist. But somehow when I looked at her photos collectively and put them to music, they came to life. Telling a story, her story. A story of pain, struggle, love, loss.

I saw something else in her photos that I haven’t seen in her eyes for quite some time. I almost didn’t recognize it at first. But ahh.. yes, there it was: hope!

For my daughter, with love.
