I recognize the shoes and the dark - was it red? - nail polish.

Oh, you are so beautiful. I've been reading your blog since your first entry--from your passage to America on your own, through your time as a maid, through becoming a PT and getting married, through you difficult relationship with your mother.

You were and are a woman of tremendous gumption, initiative, and spunk. With your attitude and your looks, no wonder you charmed your way into the hearts of the many people you encountered along the way.

I feel very sorry for your mother that she never appreciated you. But obviously a lot of people did. And now, a whole new generation of people is opening their hearts to you via the internet.

Thanks for sharing your life and thoughts with us.

I think we realised a while back where Shreve got her brave and adventurous character. Now we can see where she gets her stunning good looks, too ;-)
