Today my first born daughter turned 21. I remember every single second of that day, and marvel at the fact that this beautiful young woman before me now is that tiny baby I held with so much love and awe such a seemingly short time ago.
Samantha is kind-hearted and compassionate, she is loving and generous to a fault. She makes me laugh, and she challenges me to think deeply about things I had never considered before. I’ve heard it said that daughters grow up to be your best friend, and our relationship is a testament to that truth. What a tremendous joy and blessing it has been to travel this road together. I thank God for you every day.
