My friend Wayne started Tribute Tuesday. He asked me a few weeks ago to participate. It’s a way to honor those you love, especially the people who have influenced you. I agreed to participate for three weeks. Here it is, week three.

This week’s tribute goes to Bria FaithBria is only 16 months old but she has already changed our lives and our family. She is a big bundle of happy. She loves nothing better than to make someone smile or laugh. She also knows exactly how to wrap all of us around her little fingers.

This child seems to know my moods before I do. She seems to know when I need for her to grab me and hold on tight. She crawls into my lap for a book. She also knows when she can push my limits. As little as she is, she already knows how to love big and make us love her right back.

Bria is also a continuous source of entertainment, from the way she eats to the faces she makes when she isn’t happy. She is our sunshine. She has a big open world and lots of ways to fill it. I’m sure she will be a force of nature that changes the world for the better.

Here’s your tribute Bria.
