I have often talked about the life cycle events that create a reason to give someone you love a gift of jewelry; births, anniversaries, marriages, birthdays, graduations, etc. But now that I am coming up on a life cycle event, I find myself walking down memory lane more often than normal.
It is impossible for me to accept that my daughter was born 30 years ago today, 30 YEARS!!!!
Where o where did the time go?
She was just 2, asking me why,
4, wanting to go on the swing all the time,
8, welcoming an ever expanding family,
13, accepting the traditions of her heritage,
18, going off to college.
In my head I see her as a cute precocious 3 year old, but that is not who she is. She is a wonderful, fantastic, energetic wife and daughter. She has exceeded every expectation I had for her. We have successfully navigated the road from concerned father, the one person in her life that knows all…hahahahaha. We are now wonderful friends, supporting each other in every way.
So to my wonderful daughter, I wish you the happiest birthday, my world changed completely 30 years ago today, and I have enjoyed every moment, seeing the world through your eyes has taken me places I never would have gone in the past.
I love you just as much as 30 years ago.
