Our daughters and my father (Papa), 1984.
You ‘came by it honest’ as Papa would say.
This new year’s business of planning and sometimes thinking you have been doing things all wrong the
previous year may have been learned at my knee.
So here is what I know.
You didn’t do everything in a way in 2015 that needs to be changed or improved this new year of 2016.
You walked tall, suited up and showed up for work and life and family, and juggled as many balls in the
air as you could manage.
You laughed and cried and sat on the front row of a funeral, when all you wanted was to be was a little girl
You were gracious and understanding and you greeted people and you ran interference for me, when all I
wanted to be was a little girl again.
So here is what we are going to do in 2016.
We are going to do everything we did in 2015.
I love you.
