Sometimes life is so beautiful it takes my breath away. Even in moments when it seems like nothing will ever be right again, there is always some small part of me that knows that life will always be worth living, even just for the hope of seeing a glimpse of that same beauty in another day.

I want to always live my life in such a way, that in many years from now, when I'm old and gray, I will be able to close my eyes and look back over my life, and have no regrets. Be assured that I will make many mistakes, but I don't want to ever miss out on life because I have been afraid, or because I've been too proud to say what is in my heart, or to proud to admit that I was wrong.

I'm obsessed with beautiful things, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem at first glance. Whether it's watching the sun go down beneath the big hill out back, or doing something to surprise someone that I love just for that one moment that I can see their eyes light up from within, or listening to the soft, steady breathing of my sweet sister Elizabeth from her own small bed across the room; for's small moments like these that would make me choose to live my life, mistakes and all, all over again in a heartbeat.

Oh, Clare! Thank you for your sweet words!

My family lives on a dirt road, off of a dirt road, way out in the country, so I don't often get a chance to visit with other like minded girls. I'm so glad that we've met, too!
