I am 6



Today you turned 6 and I wanted to write you something terribly profound but all I can say is I'm glad your here. You had a rough start when there were two and then there was one but you mustered on. You were born turning blue and then boom you were two. You ran around with dusty blond curls with not a care who was watching and then you were 4. You believed you could rule the world and almost did and then quietly you turned 6. I think I wasn't watching when it happened. When you grew out of your diapers and pins and into your jeans and book bag. I must of blinked when you learned how to crawl and then how to run. I think I was sleeping when you mastered the remote and the phone. Was I turned around not paying attention when just yesterday you were 1. Now my baby you are 6 and it is I who must muster on.

I was going to call, but in light of our mutual love of words, a written note seemed more appropriate... This post is beautiful, and as much as I hate to admit this, you brought me to tears. You captured so much of what I feel when I look at Abbie. Love, obviously, for the wonderful children they are; wonder tempered with a touch as sadness at how quickly the time passes; and above all, immeasurable gratitude for the lives entrusted to us.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, your time, and your family with me. And thank you for being my friend. I'll miss you.
