Birthday Girl On Her Guitar

Today is Kida’s birthday.  In honor of her big day, I asked her to strum a tune for me to record.  She was hesitant…a bit embarrassed that I was recording but she was a good sport and grabbed her music sheet for “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.  She sat down at the foot of her bed and began playing.  She used to love it when I would record her.  Now, she is showing signs of a beautiful young girl reaching early teens.  If only time would allow me one more time with her as a newborn wrapped in a swaddling blanket and snuggled up against my chest.  If I knew then that I would be here with her in this moment where signs of her passion for music, drawing, and creative writing consumes almost every moment of her time, I would have been less tensed and less stressed.  I would have spent my time enjoying her presence instead of dwelling on worries.

Happy Birthday to my girl.

  1. Time to do that now as the next years, the teen years, will feel even quicker! : ( Soon enough you will be sending her off to college and asking if you could have just one more moment with her as a preteen…right where she is now. Enjoy each moment…they are all precious. : )
    (Tell her to keep playing and following those dreams of hers!)
