January Posting Challenge - Day 7

I hope you're following along with TinaJeanKrista, and Kat. If anyone else wants to play, just let me know and I'll stick you on the 30 Day Challenge blog roll. :) My list (with links to each post so far) is here.

Who or what as the biggest impact on me? 

Easy. My daughter. 

Here she is.
The often mentioned but rarely seen
Original Issue Kid.
She is awesome, amazing, smart, funny, beautiful, creative, and it astounds me every day that Bill and I were given such a tremendous gift. I don't mention her much - once I became a pro author I decided that she, at least, would remain out of the spotlight and get to keep her privacy - and I don't think I've ever posted her picture before. Maybe when she graduated from high school? Maybe? She has my crooked nose, creativity, blue eyes and complexion, and her dad's ears, need to organize things, toughness, and sense of humor.

She's all that we ever wished for and I couldn't do half of what I do without her influence, encouragement, and unwavering belief.

Love you, Punkin.

From all I've read and now seen, she's beautiful inside and out.

And, yes, I'd have to agree that our kid(s) have a huge impact on our lives.
