In Maggie's case, this picture takes on even more significance. Not a lot of people would have thought Maggie would make it to her high school graduation, but I am looking at the cap and gown sitting right here on my table. She did make it. She didn't just survive against all odds, she is living a wonderful life. Maggie is one of the lucky few who is living the best possible life she can.
This is Maggie's kindergarten picture. She was soooo cute. Of course she was wearing a hat because she was recovering from one of her dozens of shunt surgeries and had a shaved head behind those front curls. You would never know it from the grin. She enjoyed life then, just as she does now.
Now that little girl is all grown up. We received the graduation pictures upon our return from Chicago and I have to say I am very happy with it.
Somehow I doubt Maggie will look back at this and cringe, even though one more round with the hairbrush might have been a good idea.
