You're the light of my life, baby girl, and the best birthday present I ever had or will have--born on my birthday 16 years ago today. I am so proud of you.

The years quickly pass. It seems like only yesterday that I stood in the delivery room, watched with anxiety and fear as the doctors went into high gear to perform an emergency C-section, and pulled you out and handed you to me, safe and sound. Has it really been that long ago?

Those of you with young children of your own, I know it's said so often, but it's so true: hold them close. They are with us, under our care, for such a little time.

(And today I turn the big Five-O. Gulp. I'm a 16 year old trapped in an old man's body.)

I apologize for being more than a little wistful today.

"Yes, I know that he won't stay without Melissa...."

Happy Birthday, Melissa.

Though I don't know you, this thread has inspired me to listen to the smoking classic, "Sweet Sixteen," as performed by the Robben Ford Blues Band.

Peace!

nlitndrog - Happiest of Birthdays to you and your Melissa! Hope you both have great years (50 ain't nothing but 16 is pretty darn special - although this presents a whole new batch of stuff to think about for a parent ). Your post was very touching and oh-so-true...hold those kids closely and let you know you love them because time is fleeting.

That is awesome!! Happy birthday to both!! I do not have my own children, but I do have 2 nephews and one niece. 4,6 and 9. I love these 3 little people more than I ever thought I could love a person. And I know they will all be teenagers before we know it.
