I don't know if you will be peeking into this little space today or not, but I just wanted to say...
And welcome to your 30s!
Despite what the rumors say, the 30s are really, really good!
If if I lived closer
and could take you out for coffee today
in honor of your birthday,
And over our cups of hot coffee
I would tell you how very much I love you.
How no matter what,
no matter how much time has passed,
no matter where we are,
I love you.
Words cannot really even describe how much.
I would say it over and over and over again.
Until it got through to you
and you never ever
Then I would remind you of God's love.
His love is
Then you would make fun of me for crying,
of course, I would be.
as our cups of coffee grew cold,
we would talk about life.
and "fashion boots",
and baby dolls,
junior high crushes,
and My So-Called Life.
Then we would talk about the hard things.
Then we would talk about those
five little ones of ours
There would be lots of laughing.
Because you always always make me laugh.
You are truly one of the
people I know.
There might be a little of crying.
Because that is just what I do.
And you might too.
And after we were done,
we would hug
would feel so
That is what I would wish for if I lived closer.
I am across the state.
Missing you an awful lot.
And hoping that today of all days
And that you feel so, so
You are the light of my life. You make me happy. And when I'm feeling sad, you make me glad.
