a perfect ten


I wish my daughter a Happy Birthday today.
Welcome to a perfect 10!  (Goodbye to 9!)
May the waters be clear and warm even on the coldest days.
(May your swim cap and goggles be at the ready!)
May your smile shine brightly wherever you go and music too!
You will always be Daddy's little Dutch girl!
You will always be my shining and smiling star!
I love teaching you to be an artist!
You know your big brothers will always pick you up when you are down.
We wish you a perfect birthday today with love and laughter.
May you enjoy this day!

i remember just before my 10th birthday my dad and i were in the truck driving and he said 'do you feel sad that you will never be a single digit again?' i didn't. i felt so grown up...so funny to think back now as then i was just a wee little girl then!
hope she has a special birthday...enjoy your sweet girl!

She is turning into a young lady... going to look just like you! How fortunate she is, to be taught how to be an artist, by such a gifted artist - her Mom!!

Happy day to you all.
