Happy Birthday Lucy, 18 today!

So it has finally arrived.  Something that I knew would happen eventually but seemed so far off in the dim and distant future that it didn’t need thinking about.  Today Lucy celebrates her 18th birthday.  I don’t know who finds it more unbelievable; Lucy who said this morning “I can’t believe I’m 18, it seems far too grown up”, or me as I vividly remember helping to deliver her under the guidance of the midwife at All Saints hospital.

It seems very fitting that in the USA it’s Thanksgiving right now because today we are very thankful that our wonderful daughter came in to our lives.  Happy birthday Lucy.
