Our daughter Rachel turned 8 years old today. Somehow 8 seems so much older than 7.
She’s our youngest, so the passing of time in her case seems even more moving than with our other two.
Our friends in southeast Asia have a daughter named Hannah. Her birthday is also April 2nd. (Great day!) They also have a daughter named Rachel. We just got a letter from them showing her in second grade. She is going off to college in the fall.
Time is precious, friends! Your time with your child or friend may not last forever… make the most of that time today.
