Today, my oldest daughter, Catherine, turns 15 years old. It’s her Golden Birthday in that she turns the age of her birth date (15 on the 15th). I looked it up on Wikipedia and discovered that the Golden or Grand Birthday is more commonly called the Star Birthday. This is a once in a lifetime event!
My baby girl has grown into such a lovely young woman. She is so creative and friendly. She can make friends wherever she goes and helps everyone feel welcomed and accepted.
One of my favorite moments of the day is with Catherine. She has to be up early every morning for zero period at school, so she’s getting ready for school when I leave for work. As I leave, she always hugs me, kisses my cheek, and says, “I hope you have a good day!”
Happy Golden Birthday, Catherine! May God grant you many, many, many years. I love you very much.
