Feeling that tinge of nostalgia again. 17 years ago, I was blessed to meet my daughter, Emmy. A firecracker from day 1, Emmy has always been a force of nature. Funny, smart, biting in the typical teenage girl kind of way and yet remarkably sensitive and kind, Emmy has helped make me a better person and parent.
Emmy and I have a lot in common. We are both the youngest in our family, the only girl with two older brothers. Watching Emmy navigate her way down this familiar path, I can’t help but be overwhelmed with a sense of awe. She is stronger than I was at that age, and I thank God for that every day. What I love the most, however, is that this child of mine continues to surprise me almost every single day. The best part? She likes to bake. 🙂
Emmy – wishing you the very best birthday ever. You keep doing you, and we’ll all get out of your way.
