Losing A Daughter

The photo of “The Mad Bluebird” by Michael L. Smith has been a family favorite for many years as it is depictive of one of my husband’s many “faces.” In honor of our thirty-fourth wedding anniversary this weekend, I include the following brief exchange which took place between my daughter and my husband after I went to sleep two nights ago. One should always have their priorities straight!

Hannah: But I want to spend as much time with you as I can before I move away!

Dad: It’s okay. I don’t think of it as losing a daughter, I think of it as getting my parking spot back.
