Today and everyday…

She was born on this day 22 years ago…

…but the registration office people got it wrong, so on paper, her birthday’s tomorrow. It doesn’t really matter as…

…Trees have rings and thicker branches
Kids’ shoes get a little tighter
Every year, we’re getting closer to who we’re gonna be
It’s time to celebrate the story of how you’ve come to be

So light a candle on your cake
For every smile you’ve helped create
For every heart and every soul
You’ve known to grow a little more
A few more pounds, a little more grey
Don’t count the years, just count the way
It takes a little time to go from water into wine
Don’t ever lose the wonder of the child within your eyes

Happy birthday, sayang
Here’s to all the years we’ve shared together
All the fun we’ve had
It’s such a blessing
Such a joy in my life
May the good Lord bless you
And may all your dreams come true…

Have a great day, darling and may God shower His blessings upon you today and every day in the year ahead. We love you…and we’ll be here for you always.
