My Strength and Love

My youngest sister, Tracy Hope Deal, was born on February 11, 1990 with DS. She has taught me more about myself, life, love, and courage than I could have ever learned on my own or from anyone else. She is what makes my world go around. She is the most amazing spirit you could ever meet. Never gives up, never judges people, always finds beauty in everything she sees and touches. The best lesson I could have received. Never judge a book by it's cover. Go inside that book. Most importantly LOVE!!!!
