No question, my beautiful daughter is the apple of my eye . . . Many people have told me she's the feminine version of me . . . Both personality and physicality . . . I was there when she was born, when she broke her forearm in six places at five, when she broke her ankle at twelve, and again at fifteen . . . She's an athlete like me, so she's had some dings . . . And then a broken thumb at sixteen . . . Her kindergarten grad, her first basketball game, every band concert, her Care Bear Village, her first driving lesson, her high school grad, her university grad, and endless other things . . .
I had the great privilege of coaching her on many basketball and soccer teams . . . She's a great athlete . . . And then we coached a team together that won a championship . . . She's a great coach too!
Six years ago, she decided to turn her back on her degree and pursue a career in the media . . . Five years ago, almost to the day in 2007, she and I made the trip to her first job a LONG distance away . . .
She had a career dream, to achieve a specific goal . . . And she's had to make a few major moves to make it all happen . . .
At exactly 2:48 pm local time today, she called me to say she's achieved that dream . . . Or at least, the first level of it . . .
I LOVE that little girl!
Peace and love . . .
Life is beautiful . . .
