Caroline, my gift to you on your birthday is a few pages for the "Book of Life" that you're writing (that we're all writing). You are a very Special person and you deserve to have all your wishes come true, on your birthday and every day.

Wishing that you have the best birthday ever and that each day gets even better by leaps and bounds.

Your homegirl



What Is a Birthday?

It's knowing you're
?somebody special? today
And waiting to see
what the hours bring your way,
Forgetting the things
that you don't like to do
And doing the things
that seem pleasant to you?
It's enjoying those
marvellous little surprises
That come from all over,
in all shapes and sizes -
a phone call or letter
that brings you delight,
warm wishes and greetings
from morning till night -
It's making a wish
as you blow candles out
And having so much
to be happy about
That you can't help but dream,
as the hours slip away,
Of many more happy
returns of the day.



On Your Birthday

May your spirit keep the freedom
of a butterfly in spring
and your heart be filled always
with the joys of simple things.
May your essence claim the freshness
of the new laid morning dew.
All of this...and more...
is my Birthday wish for you.


Here's a Birthday Party for you!



Quince is the sunrise of a woman
Underneath the canopy of love.
In her again life's gift of youthful grace
New dawns across an old, familiar face,
Chanting in the wind through which we move,
Ecstatic at the joy of being human.


Greetings 2
