On what would have been his 40th birthday today, I’ve been thinking that I need to honor it somehow. I’ve been struggling to find the words and get them out, but then I realized… maybe I don’t need to.
Tonight our daughter will be attending the Wonders & Worries 2012 Wonder Ball, a magical evening for little girls who have lost a parent — complete with dancing, fairy miniature horses, a royal court, entertainment, face painting, crafts, ice cream, a balloon lagoon, and grand tiara crowning ceremony.
The event just happened to fall on his birthday. So I hope he’ll be watching her tonight as she dances around in her princess dress and tiara, and catches the balloons that she’s so excited to send up to him.
Semper in corde meo.
