Thursday's With K


This evening, Christian and I went to the 5th grade
promotion of my cute friend, K.
K and I have been spending time together every Thursday at school.
Since May, we've been talking about this much-anticipated day.
She's been sharing her excitement about her beautiful blue dress, 
sparkling shoes, getting her nails done with her sister, 
and the delicious Mexican food her mom will prepare after the ceremony.

Her 5th-grade class sang "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus.
I couldn't hold back my tears.

"The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down, but
No, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going"

It was the sweetest, most touching rendition I've ever heard.
Also, because I am beyond proud of her and amazed at her
resilience despite challenges. 
She is bright and beautiful, funny, and smart.
I will miss Thursdays with K.
