a preschooler of yesterday,
a college student of today,
beauty of a young lady with ambition,
the nineteenth birthday of a remarkable daughter!
proud to be your mother,
a rush of happiness hearing your laughter,
excitement every time I see your warm-hearted smile,
how quickly those nineteen birthdays have elapsed!
your giggles as a toddler,
a young adult sharing her future,
a voice of creativity,
the tune to nineteen years of singing “Happy Birthday”!
your kind and caring heart,
the determination you have to succeed,
independence that you have embraced,
knowing those nineteen years have been a treasure!
Happy 19th Birthday, Maddie!
