Another Year Come and Gone

This is my beautiful older daughter whose birthday we are celebrating today. I'm so grateful that she was born to me and has been a part of my life.

In the photo at right she's auditioning lace for a wedding veil. She will be married in a month. There's lots to do to get ready for a wedding (most of which I wasn't aware of until having to do it).

As I've been planning and preparing for the celebration, a Joni Mitchell song called "The Circle Game" keeps coming to mind. It tells about a young one's transition from childhood to adulthood. For me it's a poignant reminder about how quickly time passes; how toddlers grow into adults almost overnight; and about the relentlessness of time. It doesn't stop for us no matter how much we want a moment to linger so we can savor it. There have been many moments with Natasha that I wish could have lasted longer. I savor them only in my memory.

Happy Birthday, dear Natasha! It hope it's a wonderful one!


  1. Happy Birthday, Natasha. I wish you all happiness in your marriage too.

  2. Nancy, What a lovely tribute to your daughter! Have fun in these last few weeks before the wedding! Loved the slide show!

  3. Great site. A lot of thought and time went into your tribute. I much enjoyed it.
    Happy Birthday, Natasha.
    I tell all mom's to savor the time with their kids because you blink and they're gone.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane! JLK/NK56
