January 10, 2011 – My daughter turns 16 today.

How quickly the years go by.

It’s tough being a divorced Dad.

You try, as much as you can…to be actively engaged in your child’s life…to treasure the time you have with her; the memories you are able to build.

My daughter turns 16 today, and…now that I live in a different city from her, I offer up to the RID project the bed sheets she used to sleep on when she came to visit me.

I bought these sheets as a way of helping her feel at home, even though when she was at my place…she technically wasn’t “at home.”

Happy birthday, Devon…from too far away.
