Lia Walks

Lia Walks

Lia decided she would give me the best birthday present ever by walking for me. We just happened to be at our good friends Kathy and Russ’ as I was showing how she could take a few steps, when all of a sudden she Riverdanced all the way from the kitchen into the living room on a 13 step crusade. No words could explain the look on my face as I’m sure it matched the shocked look everyone had when the O.J. Simpson verdict was read. My first reaction was “Yeah, she is walking”, quickly followed by “Oh No, she is walking.”

All jokes aside, it is a moment I will cherish forever and I thank God that I was there to witness it with such great friends. When it is time for me to walk Lia down the aisle to give her away to her future husband, I’m almost positive that this moment will play over in my head and bring a tear to my eye.

Lia, I want you to know as you sit on my lap while I write this, that you will always be daddy’s little girl and my sweet angel. This years birthday present from you to me was seeing you walk. Is it safe to say your present to me next year will be a bottle of Just For Men after a full year of chasing you around with your newly acquired talent?
