Can it be twenty five years ago that you came into this world,
My sweet little blue eyed precious baby girl?
You captured my heart from the moment we met!
The first time I held you… well, I will never forget.
You overwhelmed me with love at the very start
and through the years you have captured my heart
You have made me laugh and entertained us from the beginning
With you in our lives we were constantly grinning
You’ve taken on life with all of your might
When you take on a project you fight the good fight
You finish it through to the very end
And then you get up to do it all over again
You have a way of holding our hearts in the palm of your hand
And when you believe in something, you take a firm stand
Your beauty has been evident from the very start
But what I am most proud of… is what’s in your heart!
As a mama I could count all the things you have done,
counting to a thousand naming them each, one by one~
but it’s not just your talents or the way that you shine,
even though I’m constantly boasting; the fact that you’re mine…
It’s inside your heart and the faith that we share,
it’s the way that your joy makes you cry when you care~
It’s your kindness and love that you have towards others,
That makes me so proud that I am your mother!
And so as I sift through the memories today,
trying to wish you Happy Birthday in “our” own little way~
I marvel at it all, for I know, in the end,
Twenty five years ago, I made my very own Best Friend!
Happy Birthday Brookie Baby!
Yore Mama Loves You!!!!
I just wanted to thank you for being my kid, my hero, my advisor and my very best friend.
You inspire me. You make me want to be better. I am so proud of your accomplishments!
Today, I just have to stop and breathe and realize that God protected you on that day of the earthquake so many years ago, (can it be almost ten?) as
angels gathered around the place where you stood as our store was crunched along with the car where you asked to wait in.
We can’t not believe! He has great things in store for you! I BELIEVE that you are going to change the world! Perhaps just one by one in the people
near you or in a much bigger way than we can even imagine. It was so hard to let you go, five years ago when you left our little town to go find your
dream. But you are doing it! Just like that little girl who I would find asleep ON her pile of toys…. you do everything with a ghusto! And I can’t wait to
see what you do next!
May God bless your life and may this year bring answered prayers and dreams come true.
I love you my sweet girl and very best friend~
