I remember vividly when I rolled by daughter down the hospital hallway 32 years ago today from the delivery area to the nursery after she was born. I was walking on clouds. My daughter plucked strings on the guitar of my heart that I never knew I had.
Krista's 32nd birthday is today and I'm sure that she and her family who live in Eastern Europe are celebrating.
In my head right now, all I can hear is Matt Redomond's song 10,000 Reasons to praise God. My daughter opened the door to a period of my life that would easily consume all ten thousand and more. As an only child and someone who had picked up a baby only once or twice before she was born, I learned.
Dear God, thank-you for Krista and for her family. And Krista, you are still a winner, big-time. Mom and I will be talking about you today, probably all day.
