all about O.....

how lucky am i to have a niece who lives just thirty minutes away
~
who completely indulges me when i ask for a few photos
she turns 9 today
~
nine years old
already
how did that happen so fast
~
that thing they call time that seems to fly
it kind of makes your head spin
lucky her
~
at nine
spinning her head doesn't cause her weeks of a "tweaked neck"
oh
to be young again

happy birthday sweet girl
