It seems like only yesterday she was this girl
or even this one
but somehow, in the blink of an eye, she vanished.
Monday she was this girl:
She who is the very best surprise of my life.
She who promised to never leave me.
She who did.
We had a Hello Kitty party to celebrate with family. A skating party with friends will come later.
Her sisters worked hard to decorate above the table. Her Grama made a cake. I made treats for her class at school, and wrapped a present to tuck in her lunchbox.
We made memories.
But none of us was able to make the clock stop.
Six-thirty brought six, like it or not.
She’s going to be an awesome six, I know – just like every year before.
Happy Birthday Sweet Pie Pie Girl.
To the moon and back.
