Remember how the prize winning comment was #213? And how I said that it was a random number? It wasn’t. I lied. You see, it was representative of something major that happens tomorrow. My daughter Hannah will turn 13. Yup, my baby is a teenager. Sigh.
I could write a lot of things about Hannah and how fast she’s grown and I could spend time contemplating where these years went. I could tell you that she’s a great actress and she sings in the shower. I could mention that she has tried to learn to knit but just can’t stick with it. I could tell you that she has lots of friends and a great personality. Or I could even talk about the time she tripped and fell over absolutely nothing. But I won’t because I might embarrass her. And you guys know how easy it is to embarrass a teenage girl. And how long you have to suffer the consequences.
So, I’ll just say Happy Birthday, Hannah. And then I’ll spend some time contemplating how we went from this:
in the blink of an eye.
Won’t you all join me and wish Hannah a happy birthday?
