She holds the sunlight

She is a third child, a second daughter, and received neither the intensive attention of a firstborn nor the cosseting of the baby of the family. And yet, neglected, she is our sunshine and our sweetness. Fey, dreamy and sweet she is my fellow Hufflepuff.  Her brother is wild, her oldest sister is a fierce diva, her youngest sister is a dinosaur prone to biting and scratching but she - holds the sunlight in her hands. 

Joy is one of her middle names - and she is our quietly wayward, gentle joy.
