My Wish for the Birthday Girl

 I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
 And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.

 And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
 If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,
But more than anything, more than anything,
 My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
 You never need to carry more than you can hold,
 And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
 I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
 I hope you never look back, but you never forget,
 All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
 I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
 And you help somebody every chance you get,
 Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
 And you always give more than you take.
 But more than anything, more than anything,

 My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
 Your dreams stay big and your worries stay small,
 You never need to carry more than you can hold,
 And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
 I hope you know somebody loves you,
 Ans wants the same thing too,
 Yeah, this, is my wish.

 Shae, I can hardly believe that you have been ours for 19 years.  What a joyful day it was when that bald headed beauty emerged onto the scene of our lives!
 You have grown into a beautiful young woman from the inside out,  We could not be more proud of you!
 You have been such a joyful and  fun part of our family,
 You are always willing to give things a try,
 You appreciate the little things, and the little people :)
 As you venture on into adulthood, I pray that you will hold fast to the things you have been taught,
 and seek God's best in  every single decision!
You are truly a gift that I feel I could never deserve and my love for you is indescribable!

I wish you the happiest of birthdays and I wish I was there to cook your dinner! 

I love love love you!
(p.s.  I am so sorry for making you sport that mullet for so long...but, really, look at MY hair, how could I know any better?!)

"May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.  We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift our banners in the name of our God.  May the Lord grant all your requests."
Psalm 20: 4-5
