It has become a ritual with my daughter and her friends as I am sure it has become for millions of people world wide. Every night Alexandra texts her friends to touch base on their day and to say good night. She probably sets plans for tomorrow, too. I was lucky because tonight when I asked her what I should paint and she told me to paint her in bed texting her friends! I get so excited to have her model. She doesn't often volunteer and she never stays still for very long...maybe ten or fifteen minutes but that is enough for me to capture the mood; quiet, content and connected. So now I text everyone "Good night" just like Alex.
