Events like that mark time. "This time last year........"
Yet so much water has passed under the bridge since then. I am a million miles away from my former self. It feels good. I have grown. Things have changed. There are far more changes yet to come.
Tall Girl is also a different person. She has changed. Her body has changed. She has grown. Up. She deals with emotions of her own and others, us, that perhaps she shouldn't have to. She has matured beyond her years.
Where will I be this time next year? Sometimes I think it is better not to know.
How will she be? Still beautiful to me.
