Sixteen candles. Sixteen balloons. Sixteen daffodils.
Yesterday, we celebrated sixteen of our daughter's trips around the sun. She has grown tall and lovely and beaming with intelligence and insight. She is imbued with such strength and ability, which she uses to challenge us and everyone around her, and most importantly, herself- to think harder and to seek understanding. It has been an immense pleasure and gift to be her parent and her friend.
We love you, our darling, Pisces, fish-girl. Happy Birthday.
