So hard to believe you are 29 today. Seems impossible that you were not an infant just weeks ago. Your childhood passed so fast and I hope that when you think about all the fun times we had you smile.
I hope you remember the silly times that we sang songs and like when we sang Gummy bears so loudly and badly that the cat would come running.
I hope you remember the walks to the school and the parade we made on our way to do our laps. I hope you remember the bedtime readings we did so that you would love reading and adventures all your life.
I hope you remember the pond and the quiet times spent there. The library we called your room. With all your alphabetized books standing in a row.
I hope you remember being loved. So very loved. I hope you rememeber how I would let you sit in my lap until we almost couldn't both fit in the chair. I hope you remember the bad times with a forgiving heart and know that I loved you even when I was not good for you.
I hope you know how many times I think of you everyday and know how much I love you how special you are to me and how Proud I am of you.
This birthday I give you the gift of memories, both good and bad and the love that went into each one and the tears that fell from love after I fussed or threatened you. No matter what happened I hope you always know how much you mean to me.
Angie I am proud to call you my daughter and proud that you are the awesome mother that you are. I am proud of everything you have done and I look forward to being proud of the rest of the accomplishments you have in your life.
Angie, Happy birthday Rorge. I love you!
