A Much Longer Wait, Rewarded…

The same day that the Big Fella was released to me, was my eldest daughter’s 22nd birthday. I had been at the airport all day and sent my best wishes to her later that same afternoon.

I received an email from her with a telephone number included… I had last seen Roxanne, and heard her voice on the 23rd of December 2009…  And while I was riding my bike around the world, Roxanne was sailing a yacht around it !! She completed her own version of global circumnavigation a few months ago…

What are the chances of a father and daughter doing RTW’s separately but simultaneously ??

Yesterday I was able to dial the number she provided and heard the words, “Hello Dad…” for the first time in 3 years, 9 months, 2 weeks and 3 days… It was a throat constricting moment for me, as you can imagine…

In a few more days, we will come face to face again, and this I hope will herald a new chapter in both our lives…

I look forward to welcoming you back into my life, Roxanne, and hope we never have to endure such a long separation again…

I’ve missed you so very much….
