Girls Like Me

Just a quick post this morning. My niece is turning 18 years old today and she has had a tough year at 17. She's doing better, but I know the year has left it's mark. I wish I was in Michigan to give her a hug, but I can only send her love and plug her into a song someone shared with me when I was 17 and wanting to get out of the small town where I was (and where she is), because I knew I didn't fit in there. It was Janis Ian's "At Seventeen"

It's timeless. It's to tell her things will get better at eighteen as she finishes her senior year and leaves for college.

This photo is from a water tank in that small town and a reminder of that time, i.e. don't let others opinion hold water, look to your own dreams, be open to them and they will find a way to exist.
