Any month, Any day, 2003
I know the girls make you crazy sometimes, fighting, arguing, not leaving your side for more than a couple of minutes at a time, whining, saying 'Mamaaaa' until you want to scream.
I know that sometimes it just seems like one more chore to go next door and visit with your grandparents and find out what's going on with their lives.
It's just a little too easy to walk across the yard and go and hang out with your mom and dad. You take it for granted every single day of your life.
But, one day all too soon, in just a few short years, so much of it will be taken away from you. So many of the people who formed who you are today will be gone. So will the innocence of your little girls; them needing you and wanting to spend every second with you. Don't take it for granted.
One day, very soon you'll want it all back so badly, it'll hurt your heart to think of how it used to be.
