|My Daughter and Me at Various Stages of our Life, Photo Collage by Danuta Antas|
Not so long ago, ... in fact I feel as if it was yesterday, I taught my daughter Monique to discover the world marvels and enjoy all the miracles around us. Now, I was asked to design a business card for my child, who is now a lawyer, which I actually don't know when it happened. I miss the time, when she was small and even being a working mother, I always had a time for walks, plays, book reading, etc. with Monique. We mutually enjoyed our company and truly, now from some time perspective, I think she gave me more than I did for her. Even all the time and effort I devoted to her can not compare to how much I gained from Monique's incredible passion for learning new things, her enthusiasm, intelligence, fantastic sense of humour and strong character.
Even the fact I know English, which is not very common in my country among a communist-time-brought-up generation of mine, I owe to my daughter to the large extend. Now, I am able to learn a lot on the Internet, make friends worldwide, communicate with people from all over the world, make business with them or just chat. All that is my current life I really enjoy and but not Monique who knows what I would do today.
I love her so much.
