How Much Faster Time Flies

Has it only been a year since my eldest son and I traveled to Kansas to surprise my youngest daughter on her birthday? One year? Whooo hee… seems like it’s been a lot longer, so much has happened this year.

With all the drama surrounding her divorce getting finalized – this coming week – and the move back home, it’s been far from dull. She’s re-working her life and coming up with new plans and goals and dreams… and yet… she is still the same girl/woman I have known and loved forever.

She and I spent some ‘quality’ time last night together while Hubs was a youngest son’s race. (Motor blew up, btw… *sigh*). We hit about every subject on the planet, and then some. What a unique perspective she has on the world! Funny, refreshing, and bright… she kept me laughing most of the evening.

She tells me she thinks our family “isn’t normal”… but in a good way…
She gets hit on just by walking in a bookstore and buying Russian literature…
She’s a lovely, TALL, redhead with a bright smile and gorgeous auburn eyes… and those WoW-ers who call her “half-pint” have no clue what they’re stepping into when they call her that.

Half my age. Half. So much life ahead of her. I hope I’m here to see it all…

Love, ya sweetie… Happy Birthday.
