There are days when you want to be somewhere but can't, because you have obligations to be at another place.
There are days when your mind drifts to a certain person and tears sting your eyes as you think of the unfairness in the fact they are no longer here.
There are days when you question that unfairness and feel your heart break a bit for they have missed out on lots of very important happenings.
There are days when you stand and look at a father with tears falling from his eyes as he gazes at his new grandson, cradled in the arms of his only daughter for the very first time.
There are days when you think it impossible so much time has past and that new mother was just a child herself, only a few years ago.
There are days when you are so thankful to have had the opportunity to wake in the morning and experience so many wonderful moments the day has held.
There are days when you suddenly feel older than dirt at the thought of being a "great" anything to anyone...even if it is only an Aunt.
There are days that you will remember forever as being special to your heart....this was one of those days.
