Birthday Girl ~ a tribute

Today is my daughter’s birthday.   She is eleven.   A bittersweet day for her because this morning her dad went away with his work for a few weeks but I intend giving her lots of distracting treats.

Firstly, she is having her hair done in a proper salon.  Then we are taking some of her best friends (eight!!) our for pizzas.  Then all back to our house (with some of my friends too) for cake, fun and games…and wine for the grown-ups.

My daughter is a very warm and kind-hearted girl who has always possessed an uncanny sense of justice.  She loves life and she takes everything she can from life.  She cares deeply for people and animals and gets very distressed at any form of cruelty or suffering.  She has inherited her mother’s love for dancing and music but unlike me, her love of dance is actually being realised through the local dance school which she adores.  

She is a charming girl who takes a great interest in people and life.  And people and life take a great interest in her too.

Happy Birthday darling daughter.

    Many more happy birthdays, Earthpal Maiden. All children are born into the world with an innate sense of justice. It is only when they encounter adult injustice and hypocrisy [“do as I say and not as I do”] that they become confused, resentful, rebellious, and sometimes anti-social.

    “Except ye become as little children…..”


  11. Very true Anticant. And I guess my little girl is no more special than any other child (except to her family of course).

    Children are, generally speaking, born selfish and need to be taught how to share and be fair. Whereas this always seems to come naturally to my daughter. Not so for my other two children. They needed training. And they still need reminding now and then.
