The Best Day of my Life (Naomi)

Aug 08 2017

We were at the beach of our local pond and you got another migraine; it was hot and humid so it would be worse at home, so while Mom and your sisters swam, you lay in the shade with your head in my lap; I read Lemony Snicket to you while you tried to listen and rest... I was your comfort, your hero,

  and this was the best day of my life.

You were a little girl, and we were driving home late.  You hadn't brought your little yellow blanket who was your best friend, so you couldn't fall asleep in the back seat, so I held your hand while you sucked your thumb...I was your Blankey, 

and this was the best day of my life.

Easter evening we spent in the emergency room as you were evaluated for a concussion from playing outdoors.  As we waited endlessly for the doctor, I took a rubber glove and inflated it and we played volleyball... I was your clown, 

and this was the best day of my life.

We we're coming home from your piano lesson as the snow storm grew in intensity. We couldn't make it up the hill a half mile from the house, so I got us safely off the road to await the snow plow. We had nothing but time, and we talked about what literary characters we were most like, and you said I was Dumbledore, and you were Hermoine Granger, and we laughed and watched the snow... I was your friend,

and this was the best day of my life.

Your basketball team was three points down with seconds left, and you were fouled on a shot that you made anyway.  You sank the free throw and the game went into overtime.  You scored a few more points in that fifth period before you fouled out, and we won the game, and you were the turning point and I was your cheerleader, 

and this was the best day of my life.

You and I camped at Uncle Petes pond. We swam and went out to eat, and played and told stories.  We fell asleep holding hands. I was your sidekick,

and this was the best day of my life.

You had a crush on a kid from your coed soccer team and you invited him to church, and you waited to hear back, and Saturday night passed. I tucked you in and we prayed that he would be alowed to come, and you said it would be okay either way.  Your confidence melted my heart, and the next day he met you at church, and I was your dad,I was  letting go,

 and this was the best day of my life.
