Holding mine close a little longer. Happy B-Day to Reese; my oldest girl celebrates a B-Day this week too.

Dianne said...

had a nightmare my youngest was kidnapped this morning, hugs all around GDaddy.

Happy Birthday, we are glad you were born to your life this day, and have more days to celebrate it ....

The world is small and we are smaller, be glad she can grow.
envious of her, sad for you,

Me said...

I'm with Dianne - envious of your daughter's travels as well, because I never went anywhere and now it's pretty much too late (unless I wait for retirement, lol!)...but I totally get how it must hurt your heart to have her so far away. I sometimes wish i could keep my two right in this exact moment, mine forever...

And a very happy birthday to your son! 21...a big year.

Thanks for sharing your family with us, g-man...

Spectacular scenery! What a grand adventure those kids are having.

Prayer Girl said...

I hug my beautiful, loving daughter everyday and thank God for her.

Not able to hug my son as often, but if I had an intense urge, I could drive 4 hours and be within hugging distance.

Our children are our treasures.
God help all those children out there whose parents don't treat them that way.

Congratulations on your 21st Reese!

I know it's hard when your kids are away from home but your daughter is obviosly having a ball G-man. You can hug her when she gets home. x

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

Your children know how to live, G-Man! They look so happy! :))

Mama Zen said...

Happy Birthday to Reese!

When I saw the foreign language in the pics of your daughter, my heart ached a little for you. Hang in there, G-Man!

MorningAJ said...

I never had kids - but I was one. And I can tell you this. A girl will always need her daddy! :)

Stranger said...

You have a beautiful family! Happy birthdays and travels to them. It must be bittersweet to watch them grow and become such beautiful independent adults, yet feel that they will always be the tiny infants sleeping so sweetly in your arms. Or maybe I'm just speaking for myself -- and my son is only 4!
Unfortunately, time still cannot be bottled.
:) Thanks for sharing this, G-man.
