When I look at you , towering over me , in your beauty and gracefulness, your effervescent same old self, sensitive, smart, mature, witty, intelligent, sharp , down to earth and humble still , I forget about the passage of time…for me the years have stood still……!!!
When you stand there jesting with me, teasing me, telling me how to dress differently, giving me makeup and makeover tips like a friend , making movie or swimming plans I still see you as that little girl who held my finger when the roles were reversed…
You sang poems in your little baby voice !
You squealed with joy as I pushed you higher on that dicey swing in our backyard !
You rattled off childish stories nineteen to the dozen while we listened in rapture !
We all clapped…forcibly as per your instructions 😍😍…as you paused dramatically in between endless narrations !!!
We were in awe of the grown up you were at three years so your maturity doesnt surprise us now!!!
It just makes us feel that we probably did something right in our lives!!!
(Ps we did two more right deeds 😜 but thats besides the point at this juncture!!)
Today we hold our heads up high, proud , childlike in our happiness, humbled by the young lady you have turned out to be..
May you always attain the heights and levels of happiness that are truly deserved and know that inspite of every little hiccup we will always be there for you in your highs and your lows.
Believing in you, praying for you and ridiculously proud of you because no one knows as well as us of your capabilty and devotion!!!
Happy happy Birthday my darling baby…nothing has changed this year except that you have continued to make us proud, you have struggled with ups and downs and have come out scathed yet victorious in overcoming your obstacles…you have continued to win hearts with your humility and hard work…may you continue to become stronger with each passing day and remember that we will always love you and be proud of the person you are!!
We will always love you…Have a great birthday!!!
