Today is my 13th year here with the firm. Nobody remembered. I guess I should not expect much from a bunch of guys but still it made me scowl once or twice today.
School has begun again, the child #3 is a sophomore now. She has grown up so fast and so smart. I feel like Forest Gump. "She's so smart Jenny". I love that part of the movie but don't you just want to know what Forest's kid wrote in the letter? That is how I know I can never be as good as Forest because I would have totally read that letter.
I have so much to say but the words are not here so it will have to wait for another time.
I was going to post the video but I won't move over so I will leave you with Forest's words:
You died on a Saturday morning, and I had you placed here, under our
tree. And I had that house of your father's bulldozed to the ground.
Mama always said dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't. Little
Forrest, he's doing just fine. 'Bout to start school again soon. I make
his breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. I make sure he combs his hair
and brushes his teeth everyday. Teaching him how to play ping-pong.
He's really good. We fish a lot. And everynight we read a book- and he's
so smart Jenny. You'd be so proud of him, I am. He, uh, wrote you a
letter, but he says I can't read it, I'm not supposed to, so I'll just
leave it here for you. Jenny, I don't know if Mama's right or if its
Lieutenant Dan, I don't know if we each have a destiny or if we're all
floating around accidental, like on a breeze. But I think maybe its
both, maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If
there's anything you need, I won't be far away.
