Party Month 2017 #4

Sarah turns 17 today! And I've been celebrating her life and its change upon me since 2000--and on my various digital platforms since 2005.

So I sit down and wonder what else there is to say? But she is always becoming something new and teaching me something else from her point of view. There is always that to look forward to.

Sarah is getting ready, in earnest, to leave her childhood and start making her way on her own. One more year of high school ahead and then big changes are coming for us all. We don't know the answers to all of those questions yet. But I grow more confident that she is equipping herself to handle that world.

And I hope she comes home occasionally.

Happy birthday to my favorite Sarah! I am proud of who you are.
