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!

Love this format! I may have to try it out. What a fun way to capture your thinking on Maddie’s special day.
Thanks, Ramona! I can’t believe she is 19 already!
What a lovely poem for your nineteen year old Maddie. Love the pictures, too. Happy birthday, Maddie!
Thank you, Dana!
Beautiful girl! How time flies, doesn’t it? One day they are cuddling next to you and the next they are off in the world..or so it seems.
You are so right! Time does fly. I can’t believe she is 19 already!
What an amazing tribute to your Maddie! Everything about it is beautiful … particularly, your love for your daughter!
