The grass was waist high, the sun was just coming over the mountain and the mosquitos were swarming. “Be careful about the mosquitos.” I warned.
“Oh, I am not worried about the mosquitos, they never touch Daphne. I think they can smell the chemo,” replied her mom. “Look Daphne, here’s a lady bug. When Daphne is around we always find ladybugs.”
And that is just how Daphne is, she repels the bad and summons the beautiful. Fifteen months ago, she was diagnosed with leukemia. She has been through a lot for a little girl, but you would never know it. She is vibrant and silly and full of personality. Thanks Daphne for summoning the beauty and letting me capture it.
