Marigold at 14...!
Marigold is the one person in the family who does indeed walk to the beat of her own drummer, and I think she will go on to do great things in her life. She is quietly stubborn, which will prove to be a positive attribute when she enters the real world. No one will ever be able to sway her. At the moment, of course, that quality often gets her into trouble with her parental units. I keep telling her that while she is still at home, it's very important to pay attention to her parents. Digging her heels in when her parents tell her to do the dishes or clean up her room is counter-productive. Typical 14-year-old behaviour. I know, because I was one once too, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. It's good to know that some things never change.
Marigold is a lovely young lady, and she is well-loved by everyone in the family. I hope she enjoys her teenage years. I know her brother looks out for her too, and they are good friends -- most of the time, anyway.
Happy Birthday, Marigold...!
