Sweet Sixteen

image of birthday cakeMy daughter turned 16 years old today. Amazing – where have the years gone. It seems like almost yesterday that we were racing down County Road 42 from our home to the hospital pacing through my wife’s contractions. Then just a short time later, our one and only daughter arrived into our lives. Twice, we had experienced the birth of a son, and three times later we would again share that similar experience (though each one was unique and special) but this was something totally different. To have a daughter, it still causes me to pause and wonder and be thrilled again. She was and is today, still a special person in my heart. The wonderful gifts she possesses and her unique personality and spirit provide a joy for me that nothing else can. Happy birthday, my precious princess!
