Nineteen Special Years & Counting

I see…

a preschooler of yesterday,

a college student of today,

beauty of a young lady with ambition,

the nineteenth birthday of a remarkable daughter!

I feel…

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!


I hear…

your giggles as a toddler,

a young adult sharing her future,

a voice of creativity,

the tune to nineteen years of singing “Happy Birthday”!


I love…

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!
