Eighteen years ago this very day, my world was dramatically and radically changed: my daughter Jo was born, and from the moment I first held her in my arms, I was hopelessly and deeply in love.

As she stumbled upstairs this morning, I gave her a quick hug and said to her, "Jo, eighteen years ago today, my world became a better place."

She hugged me back, looked up at me with her stunning blue eyes, and said, "I really gotta go pee, Dad..."

That's my girl.
