Sweet 16…..

I remember when I first met you. You were only a few hours old – I had been awake for hours, waiting to fly down.  We had picked a date between the two due dates my sister had been given…..Sept. 17th.

On the 16th I got a call from the B-I-L, I had a brand new niece (#4, if we’re counting).  I was so excited, it was hard to get through the next day at work.  I anxiously counted down the hours till my flight.

And there you were….

And here you are now…. sixteen.  When the heck did that happen?  I am astounded at the young woman you are.  You are so self assured. You are funny. You are sweet.  You are smart.  I don’t ever remember being sixteen and being those things.  I am in awe.

It’s a big year for you – sixteen on the sixteenth – a champagne year.  It’s a year of travel for you; which I hope inspires you to always travel, to search and explore. Always.

You are my sweet and crazy Mack – and I love you.  Don’t ever change.
