It’s my eldest daughter’s birthday today! She’s turning 15. It’s amazing how quickly time goes by. Now she’s almost a woman. She’s so pretty and fresh and full of dreams. I get to remember how it felt to be a teenager. Absolutely great. Absolutely horrible. Up and down. Total indestructibility vs. total vulnerability. Oh, those were the days. Not that it sucks now. Not at all. But we’ll never get to feel as carefree as we were back then. The burden of responsibility will always accompany us. It feel so good though, to watch your offspring grow up; older and wiser, day by day. This is the gift of life. The miracle of our being.
