My heroine is my 9-year-old niece, Danielle. Recently she moved to Indiana to live with her mother for the school year. In the last three months that I have spent time with her, she has taught me more about life than she can imagine. I thought this kid could use some help in life with learning values and help with schoolwork. So I've taken some extra time to help her out. She has taught me about how some of the simple things in life are the best.
She has also taught me no matter how hard you try, take a break and come back to it, and don't give up. It's okay to take a break once in a while. I'm a workaholic and I push myself to do my best. She's just a kid. She still knows how to have fun and life isn't always work. It's okay to act young once in a while, no matter what your age. Dance around, listen to music, be merry, soak up the moment, because it may not be here tomorrow!
Big things come in small packages from what I understand and my niece is really something else. I'm very proud of her on how much she has changed while she has been here and what she has taught me in life. She is a true hero even if she doesn't realize it. She's being her sweet cordial self.
