My daughter turned 24 today - where have those years gone? On our wall hangs the evidence of the little girl garlanded in flowers from the garden wearing her mothers nighty; hugging her brother on a windy day at a friend's engagement party; going to the formal in a scarlet dress and golden mask; hanging out with her mate Bianca whom she's known since high school. Today she was genuinely happy for the entire day and friends from across the globe have sent her birthday wishes as shown on her Facebook page.
So this is a final birthday wish for today of many happy returns and a word of thanks for 24 years of joy and wonder for us all,
Burn brightly, Dad.
