Happy Birthday to My Daughters
Today, November 11th... Veterans Day, is my oldest daughter's birthday. J has brought so much love and joy to my and my wife's life. She has always been strong of will and blessed with a very good heart. She adores our grandkids and is a fantastic mother. Her world revolves around her kids. Honey, I am so very proud of you and the terrific lady you have become. It is so difficult to be so far away, particularly on special days like today. Know that Mom and I love you immensely and that you are our great joy, J!
And NOW, I have a huge mea culpa regarding my poor neglected middle daughter. Indeed, I am a very horrible father. I had done a posting wishing S a happy birthday back on her special day on October 6th. Unfortunately, there was an error with blogger and it never got posted; further, I didn't catch it until I went back to look for it today. My deepest apologies, sweetheart!
S was always the dutiful middle child and as a little girl was an incredible ham. The smiles and laughs she inspired throughout our home were endless. S is probably one of the hardest working women I know. She works a full schedule with her job, is continuing her college education after already becoming an accountant, takes care of her hubby and three kids, and somehow finds a hour or three to get sleep each day... usually.
S, I admire and love you very much. I was so glad we were able to see you before Halloween, even though it was very brief. I wish I could have been there a little earlier to have celebrated your birthday with you too. Likewise, Mom and I are very proud of you and the person you are! I love and miss you dearly, honey.
