Popinjay: Strong

Strong\ mentally powerful or vigorous, especially able or competent; of great courage, powerful in means of prevailing, well supplied.
What an appropriate term for our Popinjay this week! Strong. That is my daughter all around. Strong because she just graduated law school as a single mom. Strong because she finished top in her class -- her last exam needed a 77 to pass and she got a 110. Strong because when she was a child we had to memorize Dobson's "The Strong Willed Child" in order to raise her. Strong because..... she is. She stinkin' IS. She is everything I ever dreamed of being. She is Strong. Here's to you, my beautiful daughter, as you decide whether to be a stay-at-home mom, a sweet, supporting wife, or an influential, aggressive lawyer that seeks to stand up for abandoned children. You go, girl!!
