Beautiful Smile

Just a little over 3 years ago Madison got braces. This month they finally came off, and the results are absolutely beautiful!

She has retainers now, and they make her talk with a major lisp, I am assuming it won't be long before she figures it out.

Learned: The passage of time is such a strange phenomenon; looking at the pictures of Madison from when she first got braces and comparing them to now, I can hardly believe it's the same girl. Seeing her every day, you don't notice the small changes, that have transformed her from this cute kid into a budding beauty of a teenager.
Cutting for StoneCutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cutting for Stone was amazing. I am afraid any thing I write about it would fall far short of its splendor. This story revolves around the lives of twin boys born to an Indian nun and British doctor working together at a hospital in Ethiopia. Immediately following their births their mother dies and their father vanishes, yet these boys both grow to embody their own greatness. We see the power of love, the depths of betrayal, the true meaning of sacrifice, how interconnected our choices are. I will be reading this book again!
