Jacqueline Emerson ~ A Smile A Day :): 18!


Hi everybody!

Sorry I haven’t been on since I got back from Africa—everything’s been a bit crazy! Anyhow, I just wanted to share some of my thoughts with you all as I open up a new chapter in my life.

I’m turning 18 tomorrow. I am going to be a legal, real, adult.  Wow.  I honestly never thought this day would come.  On the flipside, I don’t feel any different.  I don’t think I will wake up tomorrow and say “I’m an adult now.  No more kid activities for me!” (or at least I sincerely hope I won’t haha).  In the true spirit of “Peter Pan,” I don’t think I’ll ever be an “adult.”  My inner child shall live on! ;)  

This past year has been absolutely amazing.  I have experienced so much I only ever dreamed about.  One of the greatest parts has been being able to share it with you all.  Thank you so much for your constant support and love.  I have been brought to tears on multiple occasions by your kind messages and videos.  

Light and love can be spread in many ways.  It can be by smiling at someone in the street, or by writing a heartfelt note.  It can be given through a hug, or given through a look.  In this next year of my life, I want to spread as much light as possible.  We can change the world one smile at a time :)

Thank you all for constantly inspiring me. 

Lots of love, 

(The 17 year old) Jacqueline

Spread the Light <3

Happy Birthday, Jackie!! WE LOVE YOU!
