Happy Birthday M!

Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday Dear Daughter! Happy Birthday to You!
I can't believe its been one year since my sweet dear baby girl was born. She's the sweet rose in our family, and I thank God for her! After having two precious sons, I assumed I would be a boys mom, but God knew I needed a girl! She is my reminder of God's "good grace."
Sweet M, you are my precious daughter. I love being your Mama and you mean the world to me. You are a sweet, good girl, and I thank God that He has given you to me. I love thinking back to the night the doctors placed you in my arms. Since that first time in my arms, that is where you like to be, and I wouldn't have it any other way. You've had an exciting first year, with many changes, but through it all, you, your brothers and Daddy were the steady that I needed. I can't wait to see all of the things you will do this year. Happy Birthday Peanut Butter Girl! I love you from the bottom of my heart! Love, Mama

She is beautiful! Happy Birthday to her. :)

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
