Friday night Tatum and I left the house for the first time. My little sister, Ashley, played chauffeur. Alexis and Layla [her daughter] came too. I didn’t even realize this until just now….but the last time I saw Alexis was at her baby shower. Time flies.
I’m so very proud of Ashley. She’s a full-time student at the University of Memphis, works at MPC, and lives in a house paid for with money she makes herself. Her boyfriend is a stand up guy who treats her with the utmost respect. My sister is kind, smart as a whip, mature, responsible, and makes positive life choices ‘Adopted’ by me when she was only 14, I’ve never doubted her for a second. It’s an honor being her older sister. Hopefully she’s been able to learn a thing or two from me– especially what NOT to do– as she transitions into adulthood. Ashley, the three of us love you very much. ❤
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
