Sweet 16….

My niece Anneliese turned 16 yesterday. I had wanted to write on her birthday, but since I was busy with my experience at U 1st Fitness, I opted to write it today.

Anne is easy to be with, dependable, hardworking and easygoing. She is more of a thinker than a talker, but she is also delightful to have a conversation with. Anne loves to be outdoors and is in her glory if she can be out with horses. Anne is a natural when it comes to working with any animals and has always dreamed of owning her own horse. She is tender, kind, compassionate and a very clear thinker.

I believe I have seen the most change in Anne in this past year. She enjoys High School, is an excellent student and is the captain of her basketball team. I enjoy watching Anneliese develop her leadership skills. One of the things I enjoy most about Anne is all the quiet ways she draws people in. Anne has a powerful presence and is a very good reminder to me that one can be a very quiet person and carry a significance influence!

Anneliese , I am excited for you and hope being 16 is delightful and fun. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy you and your day-to-day life.  I am always here to support you, encourage you or cheer you on. I believe God has big things planned for you. What fun it is to watch you love other people and animals with such gentleness and compassion. I know you are deeply loved and very well liked by all of us, your family, siblings, cousins and friends.

I have a favorite quote and it reminds me of watching you this last year….And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to bloom.

Your flower has emerged and it is awesome! I am proud of you and love you very much….bloom baby bloom!

I love you with all my heart        Aunt Trish
