Daughter the First

I will always remember the day she was born. Realizing that I would not have the luxurious stretches of one-on-one time that I enjoyed with Son the First, I cuddled her close for those precious first 24 hours. I whispered my happiness to have her tiny soft perfection to myself for that time. I told her about her grandmother and great grandmother whose names she would carry forward.  

That special day was 28 years ago. Today is her Golden Birthday.

I am so proud of the wonderful woman, wife, and mother who is my beloved firstborn daughter.

Technical difficulties prevent me from posting traditional life history photos, but nothing will prevent me from honoring her today. I think I'll start with traditional chocolate cake for breakfast.

I love you BIG, Maggie.
