She didn't want a party or a present or even a cake. (Which is good because I'm not sure we would have done that.) But when I asked her what would be a great celebration, her response was, "A donut. And maybe a trip to the park."
She won't always get what she wants. She won't get to celebrate everyday with a donut and a trip to the park. But for today, we're going to go celebrate turning six and a half. We're going to eat a donut and play at the park and embrace today for what it is...a gift.
