Yesterday was Pearl's 17th birthday.
How can that be?
Where did the time go?
She is my heart, my love, my joy.
I am so very proud of the young woman she has become.
So very proud of the decisions she has made for herself in this life.
So very proud of her heart and her soul.
Her love astounds me, Lifts me up.
Happy Birthday, my love.
I am so glad to have you in my life.
