    That was beautiful. It’s so amazing, isn’t it? How complex and perfect and mind-boggling their growth is. Happy birthday to the lovely 9-year-old who walks beside you.

    It’s my mom’s birthday today too. She’s 74.

    As one who has walked the road you’re on with your daughter (and your son too) and who was crazy enough to go down that path three times to boot, it is really a shock to the system isn’t it as you step back and observe the changes that take place with children. Now, I’m on that path once again except this time it’s with two beautiful little grandkids with autism and and awesome grandson -age 11 -who never ceases to amaze me either!
    It’s been a journey I wouldn’t trade for anything else in the whole wide world, just keeps getting better by the day too -or at least more interesting, downright fascinating -as you’ve shown here so beautifully in marking your daughter’s ninth birthday. Hope it’s a grand day for her -and for you and the groom too as you remember more and more of the things that brought you to this time in her life.

    This has been my theory, too, when that first piece of my heart left my body more than 15 years ago. You don’t even breathe the same way after that.

    A very happy birthday to your daughter. (That last picture is flat adorable.)

    Your external heart drive, DeeDee, is a gorgeous and delightful young girl!

    I thoroughly enjoyed these pictures and marveled at her beauty and charm, so evident even as a baby.

    You won’t believe how fast they grow up, but as one who raised my own best friends but still struggles in my soul over things I should have done better, I say with confidence that the world will always be able to strike at you through them. It is indeed a hostage situation that never ends.

    Happy Birthday to Jocelyn’s Girl!

    Aw! C’mon!! no fair.

    I had trouble reading to the end because I got something in my eyes and it’s making them leak.

    It’s way too early in the morning for leaky eyes.

    BTW, regarding your comment about Garrison Keillor, I kind of had a sneaking suspicion he was the mean type.

  22. Pam says:

    Stunningly beautiful. Every young girl needs to have such a heartfelt and sincere piece written about her by a loving mother. Just beautiful! She will treasure those words for life.
