How can it be that in a blink of an eye my girl is twenty years old?
It seems that just moments ago I was looking at this little person who seemed so desperate. I don’t really know what she was desperate for, but I do know that the beginning of our dance together was one that took me years to understand. Cringing when I touched her and screaming when I held her, perhaps she was the one that opened the door for me to learn to not take things personal. What seemed at the time like one of the most difficult challenge I had ever faced, I now see that she has been one of my greatest gifts.
She is the example of simplicity and acceptance. She is grace. She is the beacon of light in my life and I know for certain that she is the reason I do what I do, am who I am, and love the way that I love.
In just a blink she is twenty and I am such a better person for knowing her.
