Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Tomorrow

After months of planning, my first born’s wedding is tomorrow. You spend their life celebrating all the “firsts”. First day of school, first T ball game, first lost tooth, graduations from pre-school through college,etc. With each milestone you marvel at how their level of independence mushrooms.

But there is something different about their wedding day. This is not just another declaration of independence. This time they are gone. They are not yours anymore to hover over and worry about. I will do it anyway – but just not in quite the same way. It’s different. She is making a new family. She is also now part of a new family.

I always thought I’d be really, really sad on the eve of this day. I’m not. I’m truly, truly happy for her. The family she is marrying into is wonderful. We share many of the same nuances and customs. We have had a great time forming a bond with her new in-laws this week.

Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful celebration, followed by a rockin’ party, at an amazing venue here on the ocean in Cape Cod. Tonight; she’s happy and asleep upstairs in her bed. Tomorrow; she’s gone.

And so, as the day before my daughter’s wedding goes by, I sit by my fire, fireworks on the beach popping in the distance, and thank my Lord for the life He’s given her, and…I have written.
And you let her go…
