A Birthday Wish...

My Dearest Daughter,

My wish did come true. As I write today my mind goes back to all of the memories of time spent with you: bringing you home from the hospital (I was so scared!) and watching you grow with every passing day.

I can still see you with your little pony tails, holding your "Mooney" and singing songs with me on the front porch swing. I hear your little girl laughter as you run through the sprinkler with your brother and listen as you make up games and 'spin your webs'. And I watched these past 19 years as you grew into a lovely young woman whom I am so proud of.

You are beautiful, unique, special. I couldn't have chosen better if I'd hand-picked you myself. In God's infinite wisdom He gave me someone absolutely perfect and trusted me to raise her right. And though I've definitely made my share of mistakes, you have blossomed in spite of them and become a person I adore and cherish.

Thank you for everything you have given me through the years; for the overwhelming joy and laughter that has been my life because of you. I am so blessed to have the honor to be your mother and look forward to the memories and love that still lie ahead.
You are always, ALWAYS in my heart....and only a moment away. I love you so very much, from the very beginning...now...and forever.

Happy, Happy Birthday darlin'...

Isn't it cool that on your child's birthday YOU are the one that gets giddy?

I think so.
