Another birthday wish

I have another important birthday wish to share and that is for my daughter Callie who turns 21 today! I have been battling the flu and missed out on her celebration last night but I hope that we can celebrate together as soon as I am feeling better.

I can't believe my sweet little girl has made it to such an important milestone birthday. Where have the past 21 years gone! I have been so blessed to be able to be her mother, life has not always been easy for her but she is such a strong woman who perserveres and her smile just melts my heart every time I see it.

So Happy 21st Birthday to my little CayCay!

Birthday Wishes

14 years ago today my baby boy was born. So today I wanted to wish him a very special Happy Birthday.
Whenever I read part of the poem Life Sculpture by William Doane, I always think of my son Wyatt so I thought I would share those words:

Chisel in hand stood a sculptor boy
With his marble block before him,
And his eyes lit up with a smile of joy,
As an angel-dream passed o'er him.

He carved the dream on that shapeless stone,
With many a sharl incision:
With heaven's own light the sculpture shone -
He'd caught that angel-vision.

Happy Birthday Wyatt!
