It is my daughter’s birthday today, a fitting opportunity to look back over time and see how we both have changed.
Happily I see only good things when I pore over her old photos ~ from babyhood to now she has always been a gentle beauty with a strong mind. She has an independent and adventurous personality, a big heart, a deep love of all animals (well maybe not sheep at the moment but that’s a long story), and the courage to follow her dreams and make them come true.
She’s living her dream in California now, an American citizen after 20 years working and living in Vermont. But she is happy and visits us in England 2 or 3 times a year so I am very blessed.
I love her dearly and wish her a Very Happy Birthday.
I then got to looking over my old photos as this week’s theme is Time. My life has not been as adventurous as Lisa’s but I have lived it to the full so far. I loved my career and adore my family. I have travelled a great deal ~ in Africa, Russia, Switzerland, America, Canada, Spain, France, Norway, Austria, Finland, Karelia, Poland and Germany, so I have some wonderful experiences in my memory bank. On the whole, life has been good to me and I hope it continues for long enough to see my children enjoy their lives and watch my wonderful grandchildren grow up.
