I've seen this picture posted on Facebook a few times and every time I see it I think of my friend Sophie.  I've only known her for a year.  She's now 13 so I didn't know her when she was little but I think she would have looked like this little girl at that age.   Even if she didn't this is the joy that she projects at 13.  I've never met a young person who exudes such happiness.  I once asked her mom if she always smiled and she said yes.  That's a rare thing I would think. 

Sophie, I admire you.
