Happy Birthday, Honey Pot!


You are so much more mature than I ever was, my little girl,
and I am humbled by it.

You are so much more thoughtful than I am, and I am grateful for it.

You are so much more inquisitive than I ever will be, and I am inspired by it.

You will grow into your own person and the world will see you with its own eyes, but to me, you'll always be the precious little thing who came into my life to teach me how to be a better person.

As we were sorting through the umpteen digital photos to pick just one from each year that you've been gracing us with so far, to create a Timeline chart to mark your special day to share with your friends, I couldn't help reminiscing... and couldn't help being amazed at how much you are able to do at this tender age.

Watching you roller skate with your Papa, holding hands and gracefully gliding along knowing you are not going to fall as long as he is by your side, I couldn't help wishing that you feel the same connection with him no matter how old you are.

What a gift it is - to be easily pleased by the littlest things, to live every moment with gusto, to seek and discover the joys of life... to be thrilled about the Skate party and to be overjoyed with the simple home-made Rainbow cake.

Happy Birthday, Ana!
