She is one of the most amazing people I know. Probably one of the most I will ever meet in my life. She is my daughter… my six-year-old daughter. She epitomizes the term “true beauty.” Below are some reasons… from a mother to her daughter.
Her accident involved glass and her perfect face. Not only did she almost lose her lip, her face was severed so badly that determining the damage was near impossible. As tears streamed down her innocent face, they quickly turned red from the amount of blood she was losing. In the ambulance, she lay on her father. He held her tight to spare her from being affected by any bumps. Unfortunately, I was at work during the accident. Panic stricken after receiving the phone call, I drove straight to the police station in our town where the ambulance picked me up.
As I climbed into the ambulance, I saw my beautiful daughter, her eyes showing the extreme pain she was in and I almost collapsed. Then, something miraculous happened. Talia looked at me with her enormous and beautiful brown eyes, reached her arm out for mine, placed her hand on my arm, squeezed it ever so gently and said, “it’s ok mommy, I am going to be ok.” Talia was only 4. She was a 4-year-old child who was more concerned about her mother than herself.
