Flower you have given me one day :-)
The picture on the right is not just a tasteless picture of a broken branch of a weed, to me is it the most beautiful flower.
You were too young to remember, one day you came to me and gave this to me and said you have a flower for me.
This was the first thing you ever gave anyone.
When you gave this to me you made me the proudest father on the earth, brought a big smile on my face, tears in my eyes and joy in my heart.
To preserve the memory of the moment for ever, I took a picture of the flower you gave me. I kept the flower until it disintegrated.
When you were 34 days old
Dearest Atria, these are our feet (mine and yours) when you were only 34 days old! You were so tiny and delicate and so beautiful. I would love to see you now. I am sure you are a very pretty young Lady. And I am sure you are very clever and bright - you were when you were just 4 years old. You understood a lot and you had very loving, open minded, caring and friendly attitude towards people and life. I believe you haven't changed. No matter what, no matter how many times you feel disappointed in life, how many times you've been betrayed, don't lose trust in people and in good. The kindness that you give out will always return back to you in one form or another. They may not come immediately, or returned back by the same people whom you have given it to. It may return back to your children. Don't be bitter or cynical. The world is a beautiful place. There are many more deserving people whom your kindness can touch and change.
