As Lucy has gotten older and better at expressing her personality, I’ve learned something important from her. Lucy is tenacious and she has a very determined approach to solving problems. First, she observes the situation and thinks about it (briefly), then once she’s decided what she wants to do, she jumps in and does it, without a backwards glance. She’s uninhibited in her approach and though her exuberance sometimes results in skinned knees or fat lips, she accomplishes a lot. She amazes me and inspires me.
I want to be like Lucy.
