Girl night tonight with the two in the foreground to relax, be pampered and laugh about husbands, boyfriends, daughters and ourselves. Amazing how time changes things... yet the essential connections are secure.
My lovely girl. How has this happened? How has roundness transformed so quickly and before my eyes, it seems, into this lithe, tall creature? She is eight, and my heart stops each time I realize it. Of course I don't want her to stay a baby forever. Of course. I love what she is growing into. Of course she must grow. I just need each day to be a thousand years long.
