In our family, birthdays come at a pretty fast clip between December and March. My daughter turned 21 yesterday. I spoke with her last night. She had a wonderful day. I am so proud of her.
We did a family dinner last week-end to mark her 21st and my 50th. I asked her what she treasured most in her time on the planet. She wasn’t sure. I then asked her if she knew what I treasured most over the past 50 years. She looked at me and smiled. She knew the answer instantly. She lifted up four fingers and pointed at my wife and my three children.
Regardless of the pedestrian issues that creep into my daily existence, I have been blessed with a truly wonderful family.
