Facebook’s Photo Memories feature always has a way of getting me. It had me looking at my daughter’s photo at 4 months, taken at her cousin’s 4th birthday August last year. A photo I found in one of my sister’s albums and a photo I have been staring at the past two days, just marveling at how huge she was and totally enamored of this pretty smile she has on. I will always be grateful to my daughter for making me happy, for being the only thing that keeps me, for being all that I ever hoped for in a daughter – and more.
