Nineteen

Look at all you’ve done in only nineteen years.

  • Earned a diploma.
  • Learned to navigate the college world.
  • Made friends you’ll keep for life.
  • Learned that being yourself is the best way to live.
  • Stood your ground when it mattered.
  • Made way when it didn’t.
  • Helped those who needed a hand.
  • Loved with no limits.
  • Created beauty with movement and with magic markers.

Hearing you laugh is one of the sweetest sounds I’ve ever heard. Sometimes I’m silly just so I can hear it. Hugging you is like water in a desert. Being your mother is a privilege.

Happy birthday sweetie!
