A Birthday Wish

Today I turned 24. Madigan turned 3. And Kyle turned 6 (spiritually).

Birthday1

In honor of that, a birthday wish:

As we start another year…

Birthday1

May we hold one another tightly, never taking that impossible, aching, breathtaking kind of love we share for granted…

Birthday2

May the loveliness of the littlest things bring us joy…

Birthday3

If we feel ourselves slipping away into bitter cold and sourness, may we find the

sweetness all around us…

Birthday2

And share it with others…

Birthday5

May we treasure the seconds, minutes, hours before they fly away…

Birthday12

Make us better friends…

Birthday13

And lovers…

Birthday9

And now…

Birthday10

Just before we blow the candles out…

Birthday8

Teach us to care without fear of consequence, to love without limit, and to stretch out our arms to the universe and say, “I will live all the days of my life and I will savor every one.”

love, elizabeth

You didn't say anything about Tim Tebow's birthday, which is obviously more important than all of this. I'm disappointed. :(
