It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

18 years

At 1:58 PM here in Texas, my daughter Amy will be 18 years old. Time has flown.

Just yesterday I heard a squalling and felt the universe move over just a little to make room for a new life.

Just yesterday she was two years old and the cutest little thing I'd ever seen.

Just yesterday I was watching her learn how to ride a bike.

Just yesterday she was missing two teeth, right smack dab in front.

Just yesterday she was going off to day camp for the first time.

Just yesterday she wasn't cute she was "pretty and COOL!", she was learning to read, learning to use a computer, picking up a guitar for the first time, receiving her first communion, turning into a young woman, getting a volunteer job, finishing high school, starting college.

Just yesterday she was still a child. Today she's an adult.

Time flies, and wow, has she grown.

Hey where did we go? the days when the rains came?
Down in the hollow, playing a new game
Laughing and a running hey, hey! Skipping and a jumping,
In the misty morning fog with our hearts a thumpin' and you...
My brown eyed girl,
You, my brown eyed girl,

Whatever happened to Tuesday and so slow?
Going down the old mine with a transistor radio,
Standing in the sunlight laughing, hiding behind a rainbow's wall,
Slipping and sliding, all along the water fall, with you...
My brown eyed girl,
You, my brown eyed girl.

Do you remember when we used to sing?
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
... la te da

So hard to find my way, now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day, my, you have grown!
Cast my memory back there, Lord, sometimes I'm overcome thinking about
playing games in the green grass behind the stadium with you,
My brown eyed girl
You, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing?
Sha la la la la la la la la la la de da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la de da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la de da

And, while I'm on the subject of birthdays: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO gina_gwynne!!!
