Today is my daughter’s 2nd birthday. It’s difficult for me to endure, because it’s so important to me and she doesn’t really understand what it means.
My chief desire for this day has been to make her feel cherished. If she could just walk away feeling loved and cherished, my heart would be satisfied. But alas, she is but two, and such feelings do not appear to be possible yet. Taking her special places and spending time with her is fun, but not so out of the ordinary that she can tell today is special.
