Lost in the mail

Dear Gulgul,

Waking up this morning, I was reminded of a day 6 years ago when the snow was falling gently and beautifully. Your mom was in the hospital eagerly waiting for your arrival. K took your anxious grand mom to the hospital to wait with your mom and dad. Late that night we drove to the hospital to be met by one of the widest grins I have seen on your dad’s face. He was one proud papa! He had a T Shirt on with your baby footprint on them.

Over the years I have seen you grow from a baby to a young shy girl with an interest in books. In many ways you mark the passage of time for me. Seeing you grow makes me realize how many years your parents and I have been friends.

Today, as I remember the day of your birth I want to wish you a long life, plenty of happiness, courage to pursue your dreams and the knowledge you are loved by everyone around you.

God bless you Gulgul and Happy Birthday!!
